Just a quick little post here. Everything is going fine, having a great time, just trying to decide what to see and where to go next. I have been real busy and haven't had time to post in a while, I know no excuses haha. I am heading to Sicily tomorrow until Monday so I wont have anything new up until then but plan on Monday or Tuesday night posting some more pictures of my travels.

Vicolo Santa Maria in Cappella, 6 (Building B 2nd floor)

This is where I will be living for the semester it is a fairly large complex with assisted elderly living on the first floor facing inwards towards the courtyard and student housing on the 1st , 2nd , and 3rd floors. The outside doesn’t look like much but the inside is pretty nice inside.

Main entry that is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

 Small parking area inside the gate with the entrance door to the foyer.

Foyer where the doorman sits that leads into our courtyard.

The Courtyard

Path to our old fountain.

Nice and quiet, good amount of sun during the day, and private to the residence of the building.

Also it is also filled with Tangerine and Lemon trees which we can pick and eat.

The back or night entrance.

Una Vita non Basta! (A lifetime is not enough)

Well it took a week but I finally got the blog up and running. I am here in Rome and having a blast, the food is great the weather is beautiful, and the city is amazing! The plan is to, at least once a week, put up pictures and posts about what I am working on in studio, the sites I am seeing within Rome, and my travels around Italy and Europe.
