Rom eben

Wissen Sie, wenn jemand mehrere Jahre im Rom gelebt hat und danach immer noch alles romantisch und toll findet, denn hat er die Stadt nicht kennengelernt und nicht kapiert. Und dannoch: Wer Rom einmal geliebt hat, der wird es immer lieben. Sie werden Rom vermissen, wenn Sie erst weg sind. Denn diese Stadt ist einmalig, Rom eben

(You see, when someone has lived in Rome a number of years and still finds everything romantic and wonderful, they have neither gotten to know the city nor understood it. And yet: he who loved Rome once will love it forever. You will miss Rome only when you have left. For this city is unique, in short, Rome)

– Stefan Ulrich
