Summer in Rome is filled with some of my favorite activities. All of them are outside, near historic monuments and all of them are free.

La Grande Bellezza

I have talked about home before, and what a evasive, variable thing it can be for a longtime expat like me. 


Finally {Tacos in Rome + La Taqueria}

Ask an American expat in Rome what they miss most from the states and nine times out of ten the answer will be Mexican food.  For some reason, this is cuisine that has just not caught on here.  You can get good burgers, great cocktails and there was a even a cupcake craze here for a little while.  For whatever reason, there was no really good Mexican.  I am happy to say that has now changed.
