Happy new year lovelies!
I brought in the bells with the teacher and my very best friend on a rooftop in the capital. None of us had a reliable source of time so we watched bemused and confused as fireworks sporadically began to light up different areas of the city. We all fell silent as suddenly a huge golden shower lit up the castle in front of us. 2011 had arrived.
It was stunning. I can't believe how lucky we were that the boys next door were at the party and had access to such a perfect spot to see the spectacles with the ones you love. (Not 80 000 other people like me and my girl did last year. Fighting off horny teenage Italians get old very quickly.)
Photos are by me with my best girl's camera.
