Mercato Esquilino

For my Italian class, I had to do  a project which involved going to explore a place in Rome. My group got Il Mercato Esquilino. Previous to this, I had no idea what or this place was, so I was excited to get to visit it.

My group took the bus and then a metro to arrive at Termini, from there we walked for 7 minutes and the market was right there. When we walked in, we were greeted with the wonderful smells of the freshest seafood, fruits, and vegetables. There was a huge variety of products, they ranged from artisanal chocolates to Halal meat, Indian specialties, and Latin foods.

I was especially excited to see that in the Latin stand they had tamarindo. A delicious fruit that I used to eat a lot of back in Mexico. I really enjoyed this project because it was a fantastic way of making Rome part of the classroom. We had the opportunity of practicing Italian, connecting with the locals and being a part of everyday Roman life.screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-9-17-18-pmscreen-shot-2016-11-21-at-9-17-11-pm
