The winds of Rome

High winds struck Rome during last evening's rush hour... apparently the illegal parking gods were partly responsible, as an illegally parked car was crushed by a falling tree right under our terrace.

We're not sure what gods decided to rip apart our patio umbrella, which was nicely folded up at the time.

And an Easter postscript... guilty pleasures... buying an Easter colombo (lit. "dove": sweet bread with candied fruit inside and topped with sugar crystals, in the shape of a dove) at 60% discount after Easter and stuffing ourselves with it for the next 10 days.
