Piazza Navona

Delicious, overpriced roasted chestnuts.

An obelisk from ancient Egypt

A common scam directed at tourists with long hair is for illegals to offer hair wraps (much like you can get on a cruise port of call) then charge an obscene amount for the service. If you refuse to pay the price they dictate, they become aggressive. I was taking video of the fountain because the wind had kicked up so much that the water was dancing everywhere. I then made a 360 turn with my camera just for ambience and didn't notice anything special about the men standing behind us. Apparently they had followed us down the square. Greedy hair mafia. :) Csilla took care of them. Brava, Csilla!
