New Year’s Fireworks
Welcome to 2010! Coming from Massachusetts, land of strict laws against buying fireworks (among other things), I was shocked my first New Year’s in Rome when the entire night was marked by people setting off firecrackers. Every year it seems like something bad happens because of it, last year a guy in Naples died after being hit by a firecracker, but this year no deaths were reported, just some accidents. Ok sorry, perhaps that’s a bit morbid to start off the post with! I took this shot out the window of my new apartment which shows just some of the fireworks that went off during the night. Even though it was a bit rainy, that didn’t stop people from celebrating.
