First Fountain of Rome

We were in Siena and the most perfectly medieval place to be, accept the wifi was also medieval, so we were out of touch for 2 whole days!
Now we are in Rome and this was the first fountain I was able to get up close and personal with, risking my life to step 3 inches into the traffic zone. It is at the base of an Egyptian obelisk at piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano. We are staying down the street,  in an apartment near the Coloseum.
The traffic in Rome was pretty scary made worse by the fact that there was some sort of transport strike today. Our cab driver drove in a style....let's just call it sinuous.
We stopped for a light dinner of bucatoni all'amarticiana which is a light tomato sauce with porky bits, and cannolloni stuffed with ricotta and spinach. And gelato of course.
Our Airbnb hosts were so nice and actually made some reservations at galleries for us so tomorrow we have to start to get organized. I think Carmen is in culture shock.
