After half a day in Rome, I got a message from my sister, “How is it?” she asked. “As romantic as it is depicted in the movies?”
It sure would have been, if not for the scorching sun and the long queues. We had taken an early morning flight from London, reached our hotel in Rome around lunch time and headed straight to the Vatican city. You can’t enjoy on an empty stomach now, can you?
“We haven’t actually seen Rome, love. Give it a chance!” my husband reasoned in his genteel voice. I can’t argue with Mr. Right and so ignoring my growling tummy, I opened my arms and embraced the city of Rome. And as it happened, I did fall in love. The next time a message popped up on my phone from my sister, I did not hesitate before replying, “Yes, yes it is!”
