It feels good to be back in the eternal city of Rome. The streets are more noisy and crowded than ever, but there are several Christmas markets still around to ease it up. Even though it’s a bit chilly, the sun is out and the scenery is spectacular.

I do prefer the summertime edition of the city, with beautiful green scenery along the river and lovely outdoor tables in every narrow alley. But the December air is crisp and the temperature is a lot more bearable, so I think of it as another side of the amazing city.

All in all, it’s a perfect time for having too many Cacio e pepe and perhaps a tiny glass of Prosecco.

To all my friends across the world, have a Happy New Year wherever you are!
