Home Soon

Our time in Rome is winding down. We have less than three weeks left here. I will be very sad to leave, but at the same time I am ready to go home. There really is no place like home. I have missed so many things about home while I was here - mostly food items. Believe me when I tell you that the selection is limited to Italian food here in Italy. That might sound OK to some of you, but I really miss having a diverse selection of food to eat. It is pretty much pasta, pasta, and more pasta. And knitters - yarn stores are few and far between. Knitting is not really as big here as it is in other countries. Knitting here is something the grandmothers do. In Rome, there are only two yarn stores that I know of. I have only been to one. Lana Della Vecchia:

It is a tiny little yarn store near the Campo De Fiori. Not like the stores back home. They do have a pretty good selection of Italian yarns, though, and among other things..... undergarments!

Yes - those are Playtex bras in the window. Very weird.
