Our only excursion this week took place on Wednesday, when we followed in the footsteps of Winckelmann and the like at the Palazzo Altemps:
Detail of the magnificent 3rd century CE sarcofagus depicting Romans battling Barbarians all over the place.
Its original lid is in Mainz, the label says... Now, there's a collection that seems to pop up in the photocredits of every other publication. Muttered an oath to visit next time I fly Ryanair to Hahn...
It's already weekend again, and the sun is shining brightly. The plan is to make a big batch of a) crêpes (flambées, sucrées, salées, ...all kinds), and b) wash them down with a few carefully mixed mojitos. Sounds like a very good plan indeed :)
