My friends have been asking me why I call my blog Karma Roma so here’s why! In Buddhist teaching, part of the law of karma, says that `for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first’. I should have paid careful attention to this when I met my ‘fidanzato’ (Fidz for short) in Toronto. Fidz is Italian and always talked about retirement in Italy. I paid little heed, seeing this as a far and distant future event. Well the ‘future’ has now become the present and Fidz has set his sights on living in Rome. In my youth, I had heard the phrase “All roads lead to Rome”. Little did I know that in my older years, I would be on one of them! How to leave my family, friends and comfortable house in downtown Toronto and move to a small apartment in Rome not speaking Italian? I came to Rome to check it out and fell in love with the city. When I step out, I see beauty everywhere, the buildings, the landscape, the art. I love food so just going to the market everyday is a pleasure. I started this blog to keep my family and friends in touch with my life in Rome and consists of random thoughts on food, beauty and living in Rome but it has grown to include other adventures!
