Dang, I look away for a couple of weeks and you post TWO PAGES of great photos.

I've gotta say, there are some pretty creative parking spots that I doubt I would even think of as an visitor...though I guess necessity being the mother of invention and all.....

Oddly hard to find the old stuff here in Rome - walked for literally 9 miles yesterday 😬 and didn't get a single one…which maybe correlates with the parking; it's a dog eat dog world out there for vehicles!

Off to see the Pope this morning - imma bring it up with him.

tdrake,

Walking around Rome. Life has great moments. Thanks for
sharing those timeless photos. I am afraid I spent my young
adult life in Rome chasing and trying to hook up with single
USA female tourists. Although, the nice ladies from the UK and
Germany were never turned away.

Back then, I think hormones controlled the majority of my brain
functioning. It was all the unique background of Italia, riding my
Ducati, trying to look cool, and girls, girls, girls.

tdrake - amazing photos. You could put together a coffee table
book entitled "Scoots of Italia".

Bob Copeland
50 Years ago - Trying to be cool and headed to Roma from Napoli.  Note the
Red Scarf - that is the Giuseppe Garibaldi look.  Garibaldi and his Red Shirts helped
unify Italy.

Bob - My strong impression is that hormones unabashedly still drive this town. Lordy. 🙄. I'll leave it to the philosophers to figure out why the pops set up shop in the center of the unabashedly sexiest city on the planet.

Anyway, I'm to old and slow for this place and so gotta admit I'm ready for home.

Less ready for the 25 hour journey tho😶

Parting shots…
