My trip to Rome


While the sea cools, faraway places call our volunteer Radek and boiling blood brings him into the arms of Rome. Six days in six points.

The first whole day we walked around historical center with il Colosseo, i Fori Imperiali, l´Arco di Costantino, il Vittoriano, Piazza del Campidoglio e i Musei Capitolini. We did not find time for Star Wars exhibition.

I lived with three girls and all the evenings we avidly played cards (Scala 40, Macchiavelli, Burraco, Black Jack…).

During week I also had chance to participate on some courses of Universitá La Sapienza. The top was lesson about an aestetics according Kant. After that lesson I visited Il Museo dell´arte classica inside of university. In the evening we baked lasagne and also made tiramisu because we needed a sugar for our concentration.

Another evening we enjoyed busking – sprayers, painters, caricaturists, musicians but also sellers of wooden statues from Africa, dealers of blankets and giraffes and necklaces for good luck and kitschy souvenirs everywhere. Fortunately, during way to the Pantheon we did not drown in a flood of goods and we paid tribute to Neptune in the Fontana di Trevi.

The Vatican is not only full of empty chairs and hidden beggars beneath columns, but there you can also meet a group of nuns. Six nuns equals six mobile phones. God bless countless selfies.

In Rome I was accomodated thanks to friends who I had met like FAI volunteers in the Bay of Ieranto. It was nice with them to visit natural complex Villa Gregoriana which is cared by FAI.
