If you have any chance whatsoever to see this show, I would definitely do it!

Rapporto di Roma 15: Homeward Bound

April 12, 2010 Posted by suefairview

Meet Leeluu [a Boston terrier]. We made her acquaintance at Madrid Barajas Airport. Isn’t she a princess? Her lady-in-waiting was returning to her castle in Miami.

Her lady would take her chew toy from her and taunt her with it. Leeluu would grab it and…

Return to the safety of her carrier, probably thinking, “I am not to be disturbed until I am in my palace!”

Look at her regal lines. Definitely royal lineage!

Rapporto di Roma 14: Roman Holiday!

April 10, 2010 Posted by suefairview

Our last full day in Rome dawned sunny and bright! We had decided to rent a motor scooter from Bici & Baci and it was a short walk to get there. They had Vespas just like in the movie Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck. Of course we had to have a bright red one! Plus they gave us a 10 Euro break on it!
I don’t suggest you rent a motor scooter in Rome unless you have ridden one, or a motorcycle, in a city before. Rome is a busy city and there is traffic zooming around you and you will have your life in your hands at all times. Sean has had this experience when he was in his twenties on motorcycles and has ridden his bicycle in NYC as well. I have been a passenger on motorcycles in my *cough* ill spent youth and pretty much have lived on my bicycle as well as having ridden in NYC. More than that though, you may think you know your way around, but then the street that you plan on taking is one way the wrong way and you have to not be flustered by that. Just keep going and look for a street that goes the way you want.
Also, the Roman drivers are more aware in general than in the USA. They make eye contact before they take action and are aggressive. You can rely on them to go if you don’t. He who hesitates is lost.
So we rented a bright red, brand new automatic Vespa and had a blast! People everywhere just gaped at us as if we were driving a Ferrari! I clung to Sean and he drove like a pro; we leaned into the curves and blended with the traffic! What a trip! First stop, the Murano Glass Shop to get Mom’s beads. We headed to Via Veneto and wouldn’t you know it, the street the shop was on was one way the wrong way!!! But we got there.
Here are photos from inside the shop. I love glass! And I love Murano glass even more! Here is the Antica Murrina case where mom’s beads came from:
Here is another case in the shop:
I you enlarge it you can see the millefiori in the picture frames and paper weights. In the photo below you can see one of the famed Murano chandeliers in red.
The wall of the shop below has vases, and trinkets.
Isn’t this ceiling fixture lovely? It has gold sparkles that may not be visible, but make it quite handsome in my opinion. I would have it in my house if I could afford it.
Just because there can never be enough glass:
More vases and picture frames:
Here are the beads we bought for mom:
They really suit her and I think she liked them! This is what I bought for myself:
It is a golden glass necklace with matching earrings, a pair of turquoise blue glass, heart shaped earrings and some green and yellow millefiori cross earrings. The crosses were originally pendents, but I asked the sales clerk if she could make them into earrings and she did.  Sean saw a bowl and two perfume bottles for his collection, but refused to buy them. We were not charged the Value Added Tax (VAT) and she gave me the cross earrings for free! What a deal!

We remounted our Vespa and were on our way! We had not yet seen the Piazza del Popolo so we zipped over there. We parked across the street and walked to the Piazza. We got quite the surprise when we entered! Another protest! Ah, this time the Communists and Socialists!

It was difficult to see the famous Piazza landmarks with all of the protest paraphernalia distributed around. At least the Fontana del Nettuno is still visible!
Well, I always say, if you can’t beat them, join them! I raise my fist in solidarity, my Italian brothers!
Then it was back on the Vespa to continue our tour of the outskirts of Rome! We just had to stop for Sean to take my photo in front of this little secret basilica though.
This was truly a capper to our trip to Rome! It was breathtaking and exciting all at once! I highly recommend renting a motor scooter if you go and can handle it.
One more post to go!

Rapporto di Roma 13: Colosseo

April 8, 2010 Posted by suefairview

So we continued through a short cut from the San Pietro in Vincoli down to the street leading to the Colosseum. We were walking of course, because there was a bus and metro strike scheduled for the morning. And, what do we run into? A teacher’s strike! You may enlarge the above photo if you would like to see any of Rome’s finest a bit better.

This was an impressive strike! They had a full band on a truck and the entire procession took a half an hour to pass. Sean got swept up with the excitement and joined in taking photos with the real news people. After waiting until the entire strike had passed, I figured out that he wasn’t coming back. So I went ahead to the Colosseum unconcerned that we were separated. Because you see, he and I are in the same karass, and the universe will bring us back together at some point in time. It is inevitable. We met up a short time later. While a waited I took this photo of the Arch of Constantine, 315 AD.

Reunited, we used our Roma Card to avoid a group of students and head in. The last time I visited the Colosseum was in 1967. Of course it was a bit different then, we could go a level higher and it was filled with cats. The kitties are gone now.
As we walked around, I tried to remember that this structure is nearly 2,000 years old. So what is the difference between this structure and so many in the United States that are made of brick and mortar and don’t last that well? We examined the brick here closely to figure that out.
Look at all of the arches. Sean took some close ups of these. The brick work is truly impressive!
We saw a student of Art History prise a piece of mortar out from in-between the bricks and say with excitement “Concrete! Two-thousand year old concrete!”
I was thinking, yeah, so put it back bitch. If everybody picked off their own little piece this thing wouldn’t be standing here! Sean’s comment was that it was really mortar, not concrete.

Look closely at this small area of bricks. Here we see some that have been repointed, some that need to be repointed and a nail. The nail does not look modern, in that it is not from this century. But what century is it from? The head was almost an inch [2 cms] in diameter and looked hammered. It also seemed to be iron, rather than steel. The repointing seemed a bit more modern. Maybe within the last decade or so. But who knows? One could write an entire essay about this space of brick work.

In the last photo is a place where the brick is wearing away over time. Just think, Italians are the people that brought brick work to the USA!
As it was 1:00 PM, the bus strike was over and we caught a bus back to the Hotel Barberini. The Roma Card pays the fare. I took my nap, and Sean went out.
When he came back, he told me that he had found some beads that were perfect for my mom and I could look at them tomorrow!
The most exciting episode is yet to come!
