The photo btw is from Rome – taken at around 35 degrees C! Rome was one of my few travels between the lockdowns – and as everything was basically closed, I walked a lot, as you do. This image was taken from the Villa Borghese and offers a really great view of the city. Actually, that’s not entirely true – one thing that was open was a little van shop kinda deal that sold ice-cold beer. I think I had several to cool down, hehe.
