A week or so in Rome, with beautiful sun, some wonderful food, coffees as they should be, quite a lot of wandering around back streets, and a less than frenetic cultural pace visiting a few churches and exhibitions. We arrived just as the not-so-United Kingdom formally triggered the process of leaving the EU. Seems somehow rather appropriate to show our feelings about this folly by leaving the UK for the Eternal City, for however short a time.
I must say that I have found the Brexit absurdities plus the Trump fiasco less than cheering. Though having nothing original or insightful to say about either, I’ve not wanted to bang on about them here. But the political news has been lowering and distracting enough to stem the flow of blog posts for a while. A few more days of sun and noisy civilization, and normal service ought to be resumed.
