I will take you on a journey through Roma.

But the first thing one must never miss in the Eternal City is caffè. Whether in small coffee houses or hosteria, coffee in Rome is an existential experience - it is that good. And when you return home and flip on your own machine, steam your own milk or brew your own expresso or ristretto capsule, there is this not-quite-as-good funk that settles in as you remember the ecstasy of a Roman delight.


Still...it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all!

We learned it was cheaper to stand with our coffee than to take a seat like you did here. The cafes had wonderful little sandwiches, too.
