Dancing Tango with my umbrella, Rome, Italy
Rome is a very lively city. During the carnival, everybody would go out disguised with their children on the streets to watch the Carnevale Romano. An amazing show, really. But this was also a great opportunity for streets artists to get more attention. One of them, a woman who danced tango with her umbrella. The idea was so original that the [...]

Carnevale Romano 2011

Carnevale Romano 2011
The best part of my stay in Rome was the Carnevale Romano. A grandiose event filled with beauty, poetry and costumes. People would come fill the Piazza del Popolo to watch the animations and get a glimpse of the equestrian show presented by the Roman Cavalry. It was MAGIC!

Bioparco of Rome, Italy

Bioparco of Rome, Italy
The Bioparco of Rome is 100 years old! Founded in 1911, it’s one of the oldest zoos in Europe. I had the chance to spend half a day under the rain there. Not all animals were behind bars, which was a good change from most of the zoos I’ve so far. So if you happen to pass by Rome, do not forget to drop by the Bioparco! And by the w [...]

ritakml preparing for Rome
We were sitting quietly watching TV last month my mom and I, when suddenly, dad came up pointing his finger at our face: “You and you need a vacation! Go to Rome!” That was all I needed to hear to get some action going on. (I’m a nice daughter, I do not say “No” to my father. I’m sure that he knows best :P) [...]
