Read for *FREE* – First Steps Down The Cobblestone by Jonathan Manor

I am thrilled to announce my first ‘travel’ short story that I’m publishing and giving away for free.  The book cover is a charcoal drawing that I drew myself, as with all my book covers.  The short story takes place in Rome and covers the first impression of what Rome is like immediately after my train ride from the airport.

Here’s the description.

When arriving in Rome, one would expect a city of marble statues and architecture that survived throughout the centuries. However, that dream is quickly postponed when one steps out of what is described to be one of the central hubs of the city. Leaving the Termini station, travelers are met with corroded streets filled with anxious drivers, busy peddlers, and people sitting with their families on outdoor patios trying to have a pleasant meal while in the midst of boisterous commuters. It’s only when one leaves the anxiety of a commuter intersection that one could truly begin to feel what others before them tend to describe as the Italian culture one would expect in Rome.
