catching up: Rome, part 1
In late August I took a five-day vacation in Rome, staying in women's hostel near the river. The food was gloriously cheap compared to Switzerland, but luckily the fountains were just as drinkable because it was tremendously hot. The light was the sort of fantastic gold glow that I associate with all Mediterranean cities, and I spent most of my time wandering about sketching monuments and buildings, so I didn't end up seeing as much as I might have otherwise, but I feel like what I did see I really appreciated. All things considered, I had a fantastic time, and I had much cause to bless my little Moleskin notebook of watercolor paper.
These are from the second day I was there and the third morning (the first day was spent entirely looking for my hostel, and then sleeping.)
The sketch above is Trevii Fountain (OF COURSE.)
