It's nice to run with no reason and just because you love it. Running makes me feel good and I always try to run with other runners as a team. I like sharing my runs and running paths with the beautiful blogging community. Thanks in advance for visiting my blogs and leaving comments.

The last two weeks of April
Since Aprile 6th I haven't been running as much as I should, that's why last week I visited my mother on April 20th and decided to do a long run up-hill. The road passes through the countryside and it even becomes a dangerous track as you can see below.
While I was running on the way back I saw those two street plates representing a cow and a landslide.
... and two minutes later I saw those two cows along the street.
It may be dangerous especially in the dark
Saturday, April 26th, was our 24th wedding anniversary and we spent all the day with the kids in Rome where we visited the exhibition of a selection of seventy works created between 1848 and 1914 by the great French masters, such as Monet and Van Gogh. Those extraordinary works were in Rome for the first time and will be there until June 8th.
Paradoxically, although we have been to Paris twice since 2001, we haven't visited the "Musée d'Orsay" yet. As it is known, there are many things to visit in Paris, such as Saint Germain de-Prés, Montmartre, Le louvre, and Notre Dame, but we hadn't enough time. So last Saturday we visited a small part of the "Musée d'Orsay" in Rome. I had took three photos of the paintings before I learnt that it is forbidden to take pictures. I was sorry for that although I took the pictures with my mobile phone and without light which might damage the painting. Here below on the right, I post a picture of a wonderful work made by Claude Monet in 1878, the "Rue Montorgueil" in Paris. The photo doesn't represent the painting nearly as well as it should: while I was watching that work it seemed that those flags were moving. Extraordinary!
The picture above on the left shows the Geoffroy's work "Visit day at the Hospital", made in 1889.
As you can see through the following pictures, the weather was perfect for a walk along the old side of the town. The streets close to the main Rome's landmarks were really crowded. In addition to the usual tourists, there were hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world who were filling the town (and they are still filling St. Peter Vatican square) for a historic event involving four popes.
