rome vs. ålesund


things i love in rome:

  • noise. we woke up to the noise of heavy traffic and fell asleep to the same noise. on the weekend, people were out on the streets, talking loudly until the wee hours.
  • crowds. there were people everywhere. shops were full. foothpaths were crowded. busses were packed. restaurants, cafes, snackbars filled with customers.
  • queues.
  • the food. the oh-so-glorious food.
  • social life. the roads aren’t empty once the clock hit  6pm.
  • aggressive and impatient people.
  • the sound of cars honking like mad.
  • chinese restaurants everywhere. sushi everywhere.
  • delis in supermarkets. reminds me of delis in supermarkets in australia.
  • the yummy hot chocolate.
  • the chaotic traffic.
  • the many, many, many, maaaaaany places to eat out.
  • how similar it feels to indo.

things i miss from ålesund:

  • relatively homeless-free streets.
  • the low humidity (my hair went absolutely bonker as a result of the high humidity there. frizz, not curls. yuck!)
  • understanding what people around me say.
  • tv shows in english. they dub everything over there. we watched sky news and cnn the whole time we were there.
  • tasteful, soft, fluffy breads. all the hundreds types of them. my brown bread.
  • water from the tap that actually tastes good.
  • the no-tip-necessary system.

needless to say, i love rome.
