I have to admit when I think of Italy, neither pine nor palm trees would ever have crossed my mind.

What we mostly saw, besides the pine trees, were orange trees and then these trees that I believe she said were poplars but we call them birch I think. They are white trees and their bark collects the pollution and turns black and falls off and then they are white again. They line the Tiberius river. In this last photo, it's the Prada and Missoni store. Right by the Spanish steps are the most exclusive boutiques. Very chi chi poo poo.

That is just so cool. Makes me want to take my kids to another country just so they can experience it. Maybe we'll go to Canada. ;)
