Watery Wednesday in Rome
Fontana di Trevi was a kind of legend in my family: back in 1984, when comunism was still very strong in Romania, and the chances to leave the country for a holiday were almost impossible, my favourite aunt had the chance to travel to Italy, and from there to Portugal, and further on to Angola. She sent me a post card from Rome, with a wonderful sight: a fountain with amazing statues. When she returned she told me stories about the city. So, you see, the first thing my better half & I visited in Rome was exactly this: Fontana di Trevi. I called my aunt from the spot and tell her where I was. She was delighted. And that postcard from the 80's... I still have it!
