For those of us without hair, every day is fedora day when the weather is below 16C.A new aspect of the new apartment - the small solarium, facing south. I've done what I can to allow one to see both the clothes and the view, but neither, I fear, is well served.

I have made the right trade-off, and the lighting situation will correct itself with the onset of spring, when the plentiful natural light will spill into the apartment and illuminate me and the clothes properly.In the interim, I've done what I can to color-correct the photos taken with too-yellow light bulbs.

I've just come back from Rome - here are a couple of suggestions for eating venues . . . Osteria 44 - 44 Via Aureliana - Signor Sergio takes good care of all his customers - great space, excellent food and ambience. Hostaria Romana - Via del Boccaccio (not far from the Palazzo Quirinale) - a restaurant far off the tourist trail, with quintessentially Roman food Guida Ballerino - the rooftop restaurant at the Bernini Bristol Hotel at the Piazza Barberini - a modern...
