Corner View: "A room with a view"


The former papal stables at the Quirinale, now redesigned, houses contemporary art exhibits, all interesting and worth the ticket and the long queues. The same for the unique view: From the caffetteria, the Piazza del Quirinale, from the window at the stairs, Rome in all its beauty Saint Peter's cupola in the background.
Yes Rome can be a chaotic city; but after more than thirty years living near it, I still am fascinated.

Corner view "egg"

Last Sunday, Easter Day, we came back home for supper after having lunch at my sister in law. Right after, our son came back home too, carrying a six eggs pack. We thought he'd bought them for his supper; but as soon as I've got into the kitchen he took one egg from the pack and throw it at me telling me: "Catch it up"!. Of course, I was terryfied at the vision of  an egg crashed on the floor like Humpty Dumpty. He went on for about 5 minutes with me running around the house. and even if I was almost certain the egg was a fake one, I kept catching it up the thing... Of course, it was a chocolate egg pack somebody gave it to him as an Easter present.
Hope you all had had a Happy Easter Day!
