Some more photos from the adventure to Rome!

We were not in the workshop all the time, we also had some time to visit the city of Rome!:) Here we are in the narrow streets last Friday. Here you can see Ba, my mother and Tamara (Ba's mother).
Here is the gorgeous Trevi Fountain! We also threw some money in it;) So I guess we will come back;)
My mother and I.
The lovely Barbara!
And under we stopped to get a taste of the chestnuts they sold on the street. I had never tasted it before, so it was exciting:) It tasted a bit like potato.
They looked lovely!

Everywhere we saw fountains, sculptures -big and small:) Here is one angel on a lionhead where the water comes out of. 
Many of the windows in Rome were decorated for Christmas. So lovely! Here is Tamara looking in.
Here is Barbara's and Tamara's dog, Tyson. He is 13 years old, but still so so cute!:)
As I told you Lucia makes the most wonderful ceramic balls, here she is with the one she gave me.
On the other side:
Here is another one, with cool santa!
Here is Barbara with an amazing "book" that Vanessa had made.
Look at this fantastic tree-cake!!
Here is a t-shirt we had with us from Norway, Strandebarm. Jon Fosse is a writer who comes from Strandebarm. And last year he, or we:) celebrated his 50 years birthday. And then these t-shirts were made.
Here is the talented Sara that were at the workshop on Sunday. I just wanted to show you the neclace that she had made!
Cool!!:) She has drawn the picture herself on the computer!
Here we are out eating stockfish and pizza in one of Rome's fantastic pizzaplaces. The stockfish was fried, and this was a typical first course here. It tasted good. Like the "fish and chips" I have tasted before.
There were three people making pizzas at the same time, and they worked very fast. There were many pizzas made at the same time. The smell was wonderful, since I love pizza!:) And they baked them in a open fireplace. Unfortunately I was so full of the stockfish that I didn't manage to eat much pizza...
Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
Have a lovely evening:)

Ser ut som du har hatt en super tur til Roma. Regner med at du har fått minner for livet. Og så synes jeg de var veldig heldige som fikk besøk av deg. De lærte helt sikkert masse.

Ha en fin kveld:)
