Today is one of those stroll posts where doors are here somewhere but not in the forefront. I dedicate this post to two women: with one I was here yet and with other I’ll hopefully be tomorrow. Welcome to the part of Rome called Ostiense.
It doesn’t sound very Italian, does it? More like Dutch or Scandinavian: Ostiense. They have some similarly sounding locations in Rome such as Gianicolense and Portuense. Funny, but I’m sure with a perfectly fine linguistic explanation.
The last time I was here was in June 2017 on the perfect day spent with three American visitors (more from that day here), and in December one of them, Liz who posts lovely photos on her blog fetchingtheworld.com, is coming over for almost two weeks. Here is her post with a beautiful door from Philadelphia.
And tomorrow I’ll be here again with another blogger Flavia (flaviavinci.wordpress.com) who is from Rome but travels around so much that she needs a T-shirt saying “I spin faster than the world.” She has just returned from South America. Here is her recent post about Buenos Aires street art with at least one door, and here is a Montevideo door beauty that she posted for me on FB:
And now come with me on a stroll similar to the one I’ll take tomorrow, with some street art that you may have seen on my previous blogs already. It will be so exciting to see all the new happenings in this area.
But before I go and play tourist, I will host the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge tomorrow, as I’m stepping in for Amanda who is changing homes and moving into her brand new house. She gave me the theme already, I’m just an executioner. I hope to see you all here.
