A Roman ferrytail
This time we were only women. I not only learned a lot these days, I have also made some friendships, which will last in time despite the distance. All came from different countries, but our interests were very similar, which, in four days, we were able to share experiences, concerns, art, laughter, and confidences, in some cases, very intimate ones.
We lived intensely in an old Roman floor in Trastevere.
We photographed meals made at home and in special restaurants, and a day we had lunch on a farm with vegetable gardens, owned by a dear old man of 87 years, his son and his granddaughter. We helped them to collect vegetables from the garden, and they made a fresh pasta, scrumptious. We were photographing the whole process, and finally ate at a long wooden table decorated with lemons, rosemary, and linen napkins. They also served some delicious fish, roasted in a wood oven.
We enjoy an excellent spring time with sunshine, mild temperatures and no rain at all.
As a final touch, we celebrated my birthday at home with a lovely dinner and a cake made by a partner who has a gluten-free candy store in London.
After completing the course, I moved to a nearby b & b, most welcoming, where I spent three nights by myself. The first day I was so tired that I slept a nap for three hours, and at night fourteen hours straight.
I visited the Vatican and returned to the magnificent “Sistine Chapel”. And, of course, I kept eating very well.
It has been a very inspiring and very special trip !!!!
Thanks to all my talented friends
