It's definitely zomer. (summer)

It's hot outside. HOT!! You can't blame me for envying these Europeans wearing sleeveless and spaghetti-strap top with shorts. It's really hot!!

And I'm brown. Okay, might not seem really obvious but I feel like I'm 16 again, after spending all those hours dancing around with the pom-poms. It's annoying, really. It took ages to get rid of my tanned-line on my face and now it's there again! *grunts*

So let's talk about Rome.
Rome was nice! If you're keen on history, it's brilliant! It's amazing how wherever you go, how random the path you take, it'll bring you to some old, ancient-looking ruins that nobody seemed to really care!
An exception to the Colosseo, Palantino or Pantheon, of course.

I'm never "crazy" about Rome so it doesn't have that much impact on me but the Eternal City was definitely beautiful. I think it's amazing, how the Roman empire actually sculpted today's modern civilization.

People in Rome was nice... and rather curious! I'm curious. They're extremely friendly, I think! Now, if you're Muslim in Netherlands and London, you're going to see a lot of other Muslim walking around in town and they of course - ignore you since you are after all "one of them"! If you're Muslim in Barcelona and Paris, you don't see much of other Muslim but people leave you alone just the same.
Now, if you're Muslim in Rome, you don't really see much of other Muslim but they would actually come to you and ask, "you're Muslim?" and greets you with the salam. It just felt.. Well, I felt welcomed!

Okay, I probably should tell or write more about Rome but I'm just pooped. Lethargic. Just gotta stop - now.
