i don't want to say i haaaate rome, but.....
sorry - i kind of sort of do.
i know that makes me, like, not a human being,
but i'm just being honest.
i could do a post on all the reasons why
but for now i'll just say
that when jenny came to visit me last summer,
she said, "can we go to rome?"
and i said, "i've been to rome one time...
...and that was one time too many."
because it was her first time in europe, however,
i obliged her.
i even managed to withhold my negativity the whole time
so that she could form her own opinion of the city
independent of my prejudice.
"waiting in line for the metro in rome
is purgatory on earth...
...and when you step off the metro,
you've arrived in hell."
but at least it makes for some good photography, right?
