The Tiber

The Tiber river runs through a large portion of the city, dividing it in half. Each day, we walk by the river on our way to school. Some people run by the river. A number of people fish in it. In the evenings, a lot of people walk by it after dinner. The trees that run along its length provide welcome shade during the middle of the day, and the river itself has a personality. Some days, it is calm and placid. With much rain, it becomes tempestuous and full of rapids. I have included a variety of pictures of the Tiber, in which you can see some of its many moods.
