One of our port days we had drill and inspections etc etc so not enough time was left to actually get in to Rome, so we simply had a little wander about Civi … Along our meanderings we came past this resting tramp. At least I think he’s a tramp, unless it is customary in Italy for old men to take a nap on the park bench next to the street like this … ;)

    personally, I’d like to live in a city where I could do what this guy is doing, without being a tramp. I like you work, Tina

    It wouldn’t surprise me if this was customary :)
    In Korea they do this all the time and over here people sleep wherever they can too :D

    Wonderful shot of this guy though!
    Love the angle and tones!
