We were in Rome 25-29th september 2013, visiting Flamenquín, who has a house there as an Erasmus man for the summer 🙂

fontana-di-trevi-roma

First time I visited Rome was on 1994, I threw a coin and I returned 19 years later 🙂 On this visit we went several times to the Trevi Fountain, and threw a coin. I will come back on September 2014!

Selfie in the underground.

 

Singing ‘Hoy estoy aquí’ in the underground

 

 

goliardi-roma

We met some Goliardies, a tradition in some way similar to Tuna. It comes from the University and they meet with their costumes to talk.

 

 

el-vaticano-roma mojas-vaticano-roma

Inside the Vatican we made several pictures, but the phone who contained them was broken and we couldn’t save all of them. Here we are with some nouns.

 

 

marquesa-pironti-roma marquesa-pironti-roma-2

My aunt lives in Rome. As her house is beautiful, we nicknamed her ‘Marquise of Pironti’ (the name of her street).

 

capilla-roma

We were saying in the Vatican that we were singers for the Pope and people believed it 😀 Here’s a picture inside the Sistine Chapel, where we told the same joke and when people asked us where we came from we said Kenya or South Korea.

 

capilla-sixtina-roma

In the Sistine Chapel people took us a lot of pictures. In some rooms we placed as if we were part of the furniture.

 

coliseo-roma

The Colosseum was being repaired.

 

 

la-rotonda-roma

We sang sometimes ‘La Rotonda’, a nice place. They treated us so nice and we gave them one of our guitars as a present.

 

pasta-roma

They also invited us for a dinner in ‘La Rotonda’, delicious and big dish of pasta!

 

policia-roma

I think this was a spanish building, like an embassy, and the man is a policeman.

 

cantando-roma

We didn’t know people needs permission to sing, and there are times scheduled for that. A policewoman told us to stop singing in this square.

 

bici-roma

Every place deserves a picture in Rome 🙂

Wandering in the night, beautiful monuments.

I think this in in front of ‘La Rotonda’.

Arrivederci Roma!!!
