When in Rome…eat pumpkin soup, drink vino and plot in advance
Fountain in Piazza Navona
I'm an incurable romantic (rome-antic) who does not seek an antidote. If I'm going to be in Rome for a few days, I can't help but plot out the experiences I crave in advance. For instance, I needed to go to the Piazza Navona, preferably while crossing the Tiber at sunset, and take in the Pantheon while at it. And while at the piazza at sunset, why not have a bowl of creamy, buttery, pumpkin soup in the process? I mean, 'tis the season and all that, right?
So, here I am in Roma and managed all of those necessary objectives mentioned above last night making today a clean slate, a blank page upon which to compose another day's adventure. Let's just see if I find a plate of pumpkin or squash ravioli with butter sage sauce or stroll through he Jewish quarter as planned….
