Rome, Sunday Morning - Men in Tights.

It was so hot yesterday. You know these folks were burning up.

I have no idea what the parade was for. I was running some errands and came across it.

The drummers were very good.

One of the things I love about Italy... the men in tights!

I just love running into things like this. We just don't get this kind of stuff in my small city.

Not that we'd get the cute Italian men in tights thing, in any case...

Hi ragazza , did you know something about the swarm of bees in Piazza di Spagna? there were 30/40 thousand of bees, is it true?

Did they do any flag throwing?

girasoli - I think more men should wear tights. :)

jen - ha.

paolo - I was working last night so didn't see the new but read about it. They had to close the area around the fountain. Luckily no one was injured.

moi - I didn't see any but maybe they did in Piazza Navona (that is wear they were coming from).

I'm more fascinated with the capes! More people should wear capes (although that said, in college there was a group of girls who wore capes, and they totally weirded me out).

deidre - Well ponchos were in for a while, maybe capes will make a comeback!

Cool...they look like the sbandieratori we see around Ascoli for La Quintana. Love the tights, molto sexy!

michelle - so true.

erin - I went to meet friends there last night and had the mojitos. No more this weekend! Hope you had a good flight back.

valerie - I agree...very sexy.
