I know Italy isn’t necessarily known for its sunsets, but this was one of the first views I had upon arriving in Rome in March 2009. It was quite the first impression. We stayed right near the vatican so we’d be able to see the Sistine Chapel on our very last day before leaving for the airport. The lovely Hotel Alessandrino was just steps from St. Peter’s Basilica, pictured here:
I also sort of chose to feature this photo today because it was from a trip I took with my two roommates at the time, and next week, one of them is embarking on a whole new phase of her life. So this post is dedicated to Jessica – I hope Shanon brings you as much happiness as we did during our years in JAR.
