Spanish steps today. The vibe here was great. Although it is the start of the high season the crowds were not too oppressive. There was plenty of room to sit in the shade and to ponder...... stuff. Not sure that I can reach the same intellectual heights as Lord Byron, Shelley and Keats. Having said that I was also not taking substantial amounts of barbiturates to help with the prose. In my defense the crowds were noisy, no wonder Byron only stayed for a few weeks.
