Have you ever been on a metro where you don’t have to hold on to anything because the sheer volume of sweaty, smelly bodies around you means that it’s impossible to breathe, let alone fall over?
I have. I don’t think I’ve ever had so many people in my personal space at one time before. It is not an experience I want to repeat.
It was an experience that inspired this post. I am not yet an expert on Rome, but since I used to get the metro at least twice a day, I do feel that I am in a position to give advice to the Roman metro virgin.
