today I finally bought some rain boots (so cute!) and wandered with my umbrella for about three hours. I ended up ripping my tights and having a really tasty pomodoro & mozzarella panini, and found sooo many wonderful sights. I sat down at a little ristorante alone and ate by myself with no book or anything. it was kind of lovely!

I am hopelessly in love with this city and all it has to offer. I really wish it would just swallow me up whole. I am trying!

note to self: visit the crypta balbi this weekend.
