This song is in a commercial that I've seen far too many times this week, so I have it stuck in my head. And since it's a rainy, cloudy morning here in Rome today, let's start our day with a cappuccino and some Bublè.
|Campo dei Fiori ready for fall|
|Il Portico d'Ottavia in Jewish Quarter|
|There's no place like Trastevere|
|Pizza! Pane! Biscotti!|
My least favorite mode of transportation in Rome is most definitely the bus. I dislike pretty much everything about them. The only bus I ever got along with was the Party Bus. And even then it was a love-hate relationship.
One of the main reasons I dislike this mode of transportation is the waiting time at the bus stop. You never know when it's going to arrive. Until now. This ancient city has gone mobile and created an app that tells you when your bus will arrive! What a game changer. Now you can check the schedule before you leave the house so you can time your trip properly.
Just download the free app "Probus" and enter the five-digit stop number on the bottom of the sign, and the app tells you the time of arrival for all if the buses at that stop!
I'm back in Roma and back in the swing of things. ...Except grocery shopping. I've been so busy this week I somehow completely forgot that the grocery stores are all closed on Sunday! Oops. Good excuse to get pizza tonight for dinner. In fact maybe I can make this a Sunday habit.
