A walk in the Trastevere

Tracey & I decided to take a walk in the Trastevere area of Rome. It's not too far from our hotel and has a reputation of being a hip neighborhood. Here are a few highlights of our walk.

These are street musicians on the piazza in front of The Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere. You can click on the video below to hear some of the street sounds. What a beautiful day!

Above right is the view from atop many stairs that we climbed.

Here are a few photos of the streets in Trastevere. The sunlight was so beautiful.

This shop had all sorts of instruments and stray cats.

This is a fountain that was above the Trastevere.

After our big walk, we sat down at an outdoor cafe and shared a big glass of fresh grapefruit juice and a cappuccino. Delicioso!

Now we are back at the hotel. We will be joining all of the cantors and other participants for an opening reception at the Instituto Maria Bambina in a few minutes. Tomorrow we begin rehearsing!
