a first for me?

Today I received an email telling me that I have won a book, Katie Parla's  very useful "Walking Rome".  I don't remember ever winning anything in a raffle - is this a first for me?

I bought the ticket considering it to be a donation to a worthy cause, international literacy with a focus on girls' education.  I promptly forgot about it, so it's a lovely surprise :-)

Katie is an interesting and energetic ex-pat living in Rome.  Her website is worth checking out if you are heading to Rome... or simply dreaming of Italy.

Today I am grateful for sunscreen.

Well done you, hope you will review it here for us.

I will, but it might take me a while to walk Rome to check it all out...
