I thought it was too easy to wander around in a beautiful place such as Rome and take pictures of world-famous monuments.
So I decided to take a ride on a family bike, and document a hidden and maybe sad part of the city.
I hope you like the effort, if not the places.
There is a small fluvial park not far from where I live. There are tracks for running and biking. It is surrounded by buildings. Inside the park there are people who built cabin, and live like cavemen.
The clouds were magnificent, though, and from time to time I left my bike and pulled out my camera.
The park runs along the Aniene river, a branch of the Tiber river. The water is dark and muddy, but there is an interesting wildlife around.
Wild vegetation can be beautiful if looked at it the right way.
You may not believe it, but this is not third world. This is the capital of Italy, and once capital of the world as they knew it. And still today there is people living this way.
During my small tour I ran into this electricity station. Interesting post-modern monument.
I couldn’t forget today is Easter, and my family except me was attending the mass, so I decided to end the tour waiting for them outside the church, and dreaming about Easter lunch.
You can see other pictures for the week here.
