this was a day when we enjoyed rome without doing too much touristy stuff. we did begin the day at the vatican museums and that was enough excitement for the day. we spent the rest of the day wandering around almost aimlessly through the city. we reached the trastevere district late in the afternoon and this is my favorite part of the city by far. we lost our way on the winding narrow streets which lead us to find places we wouldn't have found otherwise. this part of the city is so fresh, and colorful and vibrant, you come to love it immediately. we hang around piazza santa maria in trastevere eating gelato (my favorite part of any day in italy) and just watched people going by. we met up with my friend elena and her boyfriend in the square later that evening and took a stroll along the river before sitting down for a glass of wine. elena and i have been friends for 11 years but haven't seen each other in 10. she's actually the reason why i love this city so much.
