Rain or shine

It's raining.

Really a lot. Big thunderclaps and lightening, and the streets have turned into rivers with the waves lapping gaily onto the sidewalks.

The Rome you never see in the guidebook pictures.

Tea shop, just down a bit from Ss. Trinita, at St. Barbara's piazza. They have a nice selection of Twinings: Earl Grey, Eng. Breakfast...)

To the right when seated. Down that street is the church. (Yes, I know, to North American eyes, that isn't a street, it's an "alley", but that's the streets in the medieval part of Rome.

And to the left, St. Barbara's. In the old days, the street of the book binders.
