ani and bob travels in italy via facebook

You did not used to have to belong to Facebook to view these photos. You do now but you can open an account and just not use it except to view other people's Facebook public pages. [now closed loophole: nonmembers could use the square bracketed links in older archives, but FB has phased out this extra URL in recent years and forces you to log in now]
For FB novices: click on the first photo to see larger versions,
then move with Next Previous links (left, right arrows midway up left, right borders of photo, only when your cursor is placed there...,
or use left, right arrow keys to move).

Each album has up to about about 60-80 some photos (inflation has increased these numbers). we are happy to share our travels and food experiences with you. All of our non-album FB food pic posts are collected here. dr bob and ms ani recipes are here. [Rome food spots].

Summary. bob has been a physics dept visitor at the University of Rome every year since 1979 when he spent the entire year there. Since 2009 Ani and bob have spent most of each summer in a rented attic apartment in a terrific neighborhood of Rome at Piazza Crati near the large park Villa Ada, where we patronize our neighborhood coffee bar each morning [La Casa del Cremolato]. Ani is a regular at the nearby Palestra Gymnasium 91. Our annual cheesecake party photos may interest the sweet tooth readers.

summer 2017

This summer we used our Samsung Galaxy S7 phone cameras (it has a food setting!) for all our pics, NOT on roaming but Wifi only. Pretty good quality for our purposes. The Samsung photo naming convention uses date and time allowing easy merging of the two camera photos ordered in time to post together. [We had to return early this year for a nephew's wedding, where ani got to wear her spectacular AbitArt dress with matching pocketbook.]
