This past week has been so much fun and a great little summer vacation! My students departed for home from Rome last Saturday. Their airport shuttle picked them up at 5:30 am. Since we were already up, Kirsten and I decided to explore Rome sans-tourists. Our first stop was one of my favorite squares, Campo di Fiori, and since it was Saturday, we were just in time for the fresh market.
We discovered, and promptly purchased, the most beautiful sunflowers. Naturally we spent the rest of the morning taking photos with our sunflowers all over Rome! We nicknamed it Sunflower Saturday (can we get that hashtag trending lol?).

But seriously, if you are ever in Rome take at least one morning to explore and take pictures before the onslaught of tourists. It really feels like a different city!
After two days in Rome, Kirsten and I packed up and jetted to Berlin for 6 days (I had a conference and we wanted to sightsee)! More on that Wednesday. All-in-all it was a great mini-break from Florence, but I have to say I am happy to be back!
