Observations and reflections about my life in Rome, including the excursions that take me beyond the walls...

I did not see any colored hard boiled eggs this Easter. But, there were many chocolate eggs to be found... in supermarkets, tabacchi, candy stores, news stands and bakeries. The most popular Easter Egg in Rome is a large hallow chocolate egg with a toy inside. It is wrapped in "abundant" and colorful foil or cellophane.
Here is our dining room table on Easter day. The blue package on the left is a hollow egg that contained a mini-basketball game. The orange package in the foreground contains a "colomba," a special frosted Easter bread in the shape of a dove.
