Friday morning

Jul 30, 2010

I recall once before being in Rome in August – and I remember that the heat is pretty unbearable. When I arrived back here earlier in the week the heat was the first thing I noticed. It had been hot in Chicago as well – but much more humid.

Many of the Rome locals head for the hills (or other cooler places) for much of August. Even the pope has left town – for his summer house at Castel Gandolfo.

My room does not have air conditioning so I keep the shutters down. There are some air conditioned lounges in the house so I have started to spend more time reading there.
