A Rainy Day in Rome│One afternoon, while we were exploring Rome, the skies went from a glorious blue to a heavy dark grey in a matter of minutes. We were strolling around, from sight to sight, when we suddenly realized that our sightseeing was done for the day. The clouds began to rumble and then opened up. The massive rain drops were unavoidable!
It was hard to believe that we had been enjoying this…
And then less than an hour later, we were looking for alleyways where we could hide from the rainfall!
We ended up running towards an H&M (which often happens while we are traveling and the weather is not so great), and we spent a good hour and a half there. It is easy to get lost in a triple story H&M!
After we had spoiled ourselves to some new clothes and accessories, we returned to the street, but it was still drizzling so we walked until we found a nice place to sit down. We settled at a small local restaurant, and ordered a couple of pastas and some wine. The owner was a sweet Italian man who instantly took a liking to Elijah. Mama had a lasagne and the boys had their favorite, a creamy tortellini dish.
Not a bad way to escape the rain! We sure do love to eat and drink, and the little man was happy to sit at the table with us and be fed (by daddy) while he watched a show. What a life! We got to sip on wine and enjoy the tranquil sound of the rain falling just a few feet away from us. Oh the ITALIAN LIFE!
We have a few more Rome adventures to share with you…
More on that in the coming week!
