Today I took the train from Bologna to Rome.  Now I am settled in my new place, having walked a few blocks to the local market for food for tonight  and the morning.  Tomorrow I will be a tourist again.

I liked both places but they were different.  The one in Bologna matched a dream I have had of living in a hidden garden in the midst of a city.  The front door from the street was fortress like.

Then you walked down a long hallway and up some steps and through a gate

And there was the garden.  The place itself was good sized and had the best organized small kitchen I have seen.

Here in Rome I am on a quiet back street with a small garden out the window.  But it is much more charming inside.

I do love finding different ways to do things, knowing that I have a beautiful new home waiting for me.
