i'm sorry for not having posted anything new for you guys.
But I have been so busy here, and I will be honest with you..
I did not feel like posting something about Rome AGAIN.
Let me know if I am the only one feeling this way,
because of course If you like to see more pictures of Rome let me know.
It would be my pleasure sharing them with you!
So I haven't had much time, because I've been going to my classes quite often now
(yes you read it well, i've been going to school lol).
But even thought I have not been doing any research in Rome, I was able to find out some not so pleasant things when just lying in bed (no weird thoughts please).
Rome has been known for being a metropolitan city,
and for a girl coming from a much smaller city, known as Antwerp...
It's not that easy to get used to a few things.
"Such as what?" you may think, "you live in Rome, what's there to complain?!" you think...
Well one of the things I haven't been able to get used to after almost three months, is the noise.
There is A LOT going on here in Rome.
And this may not be the city that never sleeps,
but it's definitely the city that never sleeps on a saturday morning!
Saturday morning workers rebuild the building, it's a common thing here
(and with morning I do not mean 12 o'clock in the afternoon haha, I actually
mean 8 o'clock in the morning).
And no, I am not exaggeration, if it wouldn't be this bad I would not mention it.
As you may or may not know, the most used transport in Rome are the busses.
They as well, make an incredible amount of noise.
Whenever they pass you, when you are walking on the pavement, they make a very loud "explosive" noise which always intend to scare the shit out of me.
Every single time!
Another thing about the busses, whenever they decide to change their road to their normal destination (because of a manifestation, which happens all the time btw),
they will NOT tell you.
All of a sudden you notice you are at the Colosseum.
And it happens only when you try to get on time to school.
A random fact now.
Italian women will not sweat, not even a bit,
when wearing fur coats,hats,boots and scarfs.
when it's 20°C outside!!
I don't know how they do not "melt".
I could never pull that off.
Well of course Rome is still A fabulous city.
Wherever you sit, you have a beautiful view, and a gelato store on every corner.
Yellow and white houses everywhere that gives Rome that ancient look, I simply adore.
It is amazing how the city is a mix of ancient history and the modern day life.
And I guess the noise, the traffic and sometimes very rude people, makes part of what makes Rome so charming.
Hope you guys are having a wonderful day!
