Rome’s Trevi Fountain

was one of the biggest disappointments

during our visit in my opinion.

I had mixed it with another Roman fountain

which I had seen in a movie or on television.

That’s right I had not done any research.

I like to see things first hand and

I feel the internet can spoil the ‘Wow’ moment.

I can say I was surprised when

we came upon Trevi Fountain.

It was surrounded by people who

were totally disconnected with other visitors

Planning, bored or discussing the photo

they had taken a few minutes earlier,

while others tried to get a clear shot.

All the ‘sitters’ were utterly disconnected

to the needs, or wants,

of their fellow tourists.

  1. <smile> I have visited several too many tourist attractions on observed days of national holidays. On the plus side, I have learned a damn near divine capacity for patience. On the negative side, it is severely tested every time. 😉

    Nonetheless, you do adroitly capture a ‘moment’ here. =)
