I returned from Rome at the end of this week and spent a couple days away from the interviews, away from the project and spent some time with family. Being with those I love.
Arrived in Rome on the 13th. Settled into the B&B that Marlene S. had recommended--www.trecaravelle.com--She too was going to be staying there while my aunt Concetta and I were in Rome. I met the owners, Roberto and his wife Micaela, who were truly two of the most lovely and hospitable people. As soon as my aunt and I settled into our room, I called Portelli. I debated about writing this experience down, knowing that I would potentially put it into my website. Should I? Shouldn’t I? I thought, yes, I should. This was the experience. This was my experience with Alessandro Portelli. Before writing anything about the experience, I do want to say, grazie, thank you. I am grateful that in the end, I did accomplish what I had planned on accomplishing in Rome…meeting and interviewing Alessandro Portelli and sharing the experience of the Eternal city with my aunt!
