I am proud of myself that I left Rome after four days and only managed to buy one thing = a 7 euro wool head scarf. I bought it out of necessity since I realized that I somehow dropped my knit beanie somewhere between the Spanish Steps and the Colosseum. Even though we spent a couple hours browsing shops near the Spanish Steps I resisted temptation. There was really nothing I wanted and I really like how I can independently carry my small suitcase up long flights of stairs without having to bat my eyelashes at my husband. I am also still at odds with leather. Italian leather is world-renowed but there is something perplexing (at least to me) about walking into a small shop and it smelling like a tannery.
