Ciao, Gattini!

There’s something so sweet about the way children call out ‘ciao!’ to people on the street. They sound like happy kittens purring hello or goodbye. And speaking of cats, check out the fellas (I’m reclaiming the word from Sarah Palin) below. They live among the remains of Roman temples at Largo Argentina, a cat sanctuary that I pass on my way to school. I thought I heard a legend that the cats are the descendants of Cesar’s pets, but now I can’t find mention of that story.
