How the other half lives

This morning we went to the Galleria Borghese, which was once privately owned by the Borghese family. Apparently, they had more money than they knew what to do with so they bought fantastic art to decorate their villa. It has some extremely beautiful sculptures including several by Bernini that seem like they couldn’t possibly have been made from marble. For décor at my house I have things like a little ceramic mariachi band that I bought at a market in Mexico…it is not quite the same.

Then we went for a walk down via Condotti and the streets surrounding it where people were waiting in line to get into shops, like Prada, Gucci and Versace! Are you kidding me? These are the kind of places where a scarf costs at least $300 and there are so many people dying to shop there that they have to wait in line outside for their turn!!!
