    We are coming home August 28! I love the weirdness of August and am sorry to have missed it. Next year we will go away for July but spend August in Roma so we can have her (almost) to ourselves.

    It’s like two different cities. September is my favorite month of the year but in a way I’m almost sorry to see it arrive.

    I’m often in Roma for a few days in July and then a day or 2 in August. I stay at my friend’s place near the San Paolo metro stop-so a very residential neighborhood and you are right. In August most of the Romans are gone! I agree with you about people who can’t even learn to say Grazie!

    What’s worse, is people say “Thank you” then complain that not enough Italians speak English. Come on! That’s like Italians coming to the U.S. and expecting us to speak Italian.

    I’ve been here in Rome since August 8, 2017, and I see none of the vacancy you say exists. Even though it’s fricking HOT, there are crowds of people everywhere!

    Trevi Fountain was a nightmare! Blistering heat and no place to stand! Two gals in front of me kept backing me up, probably because they had No place to go either. So instead of understanding that, I poked the both of them! Am I ashamed of myself? I’ve now been hiding out in this heat, too afraid of what I’m capable of doing to others!
