There have been demontsrations against Berlusconi here lately... Today the Carabinieri were shutting streets in full riot-gear... All very peaceful so far, or so it seems.

(This is not one of the demonstrations... just a regular Saturday at Piazza del Popolo.)

Discovered a great market somewhere behind the Vatican yesterday. Bought fresh pasta (not in the picture - this is just the dry stuff ;) and lots of fruit and bufala mozzarella. All fresh and cheap - and often local. Here, it seems like buying produce from the markets is not just a nostalgia thing. Isn't it funny how in Finland, it actually costs more to get your veggies from the market place?

Niinpä! Mulla tuli Englannista vieras ja halusin ostaa tuoretta leipää leipomosta. Leipomo, johion menin, myi pääasiassa pullaa ja vain pari eri leipää. Menin Stockalle...
