Royal gulls in Rome


Two Royal Gulls fighting for a little peace of food in Trevi fountaine in the heart center of the City. In Rome you can see thousands of gulls flying across the sky. It is because of the Tevere river and so if U live in the center U can year their sound in the early morning and it is really uniqe because U're not in a sea town ...u're in Rome! Gulls could be carriers of chicken virus ...

Due Gabbiani Reali combattono per un piccolo pezzo di cibo nella Fontana di Trevi nel cuore della città. In Roma è possibile vedere migliaia di gabbiani volare nel cielo. Ciò è dovuto alla presenza del Tevere e quindi se dovessi vivere in centro è veramente unico sentire il loro suono la mattina presto . Sembra di essere in una città di mare ed invece sei a Roma. I gabbiani potrebbero essere portatori del virus dell'aviaria...

Hello,

The gulls are beautiful, peaceful, you know? You have captured the essence here.

The virus-most animals carry something, mad-cow, there is a thing with deer here, I can't remember (a brain thing-you go crazy?) and with the racoon if it's blood mixes with yours there is a parasite that will kill you, bats & skunks=rabies, rats, well they just so gross me out. We are so innundated with all this...fear...I just refuse to care anymore. granted, I don't want to die, but come on-how long can the media keep you suspended in panic?
