Strikes and news….
Rome: May 30, 2011
With these blogs I hope I will be able to create a small window into my world where I can share what is going on. I am aiming to show a little of what life is like in Rome and Italy, make some friends and provide useful information to anyone coming over here for a visit.
We had another public transport strike today – no buses or trains – a real pain in the neck. These strikes are occurring more frequently this year, the political situation is extremely volatile and it is best to try and be prepared in advance. These are a few sites that might help – however you should remember facts in Italy are fluid, never take anything as fixed!!!!!
I just stayed at home – it was a hard decision to make, struggle with the Rome traffic or remain at the beach here in Focene (between Fregene and Fiumicino). The weather is nice but there is too much of a breeze to go in for a swim.
I had a great weekend and was really happy that ItalyWithUs was mentioned twice in the media. I never imagined we would be linked to an article about sexy places to visit! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tony-perrottet/the-sinners-grand-tour_b_867696.html#s284242&title=Rome_Secrets_of .
