It was a beautiful, sunny autumn day outside today so I went for a stroll around my neck of the woods, San Giovanni in Laterano. There was a festa of sorts and a few 'farmer' stalls set up selling fresh produce. You often spy these farmer markets around Rome but I think - although they are nice and I am sure they sell the freshest fruit and vegetables - they charge a fortune! Tomatoes were 3 euro a kilo...it is cheaper for me to go to the supermarket then to buy direct from these 'farmers.' They had cheese for 15 euro a kilo...I am sure it was a delicious, home made conncoction but really...15 euro a kilo. I cannot wait to leave Rome and their posh farmers markets.
So here are some photos from my stroll out and about in San Giovanni.
I live by one of the major churches in Rome, so it is very touristy...and we all know where ever there are tourists there are gypsies.
I now live within the old city walls. This is Porta San Giovanni.
