Happy New Year – Buon Anno - Celebrations in Roma and London + Musical Selection


I am sharing here today, better late than never some videos of New Year Celebrations in both Rome and London and a selection of New Year Music. I hope you all had a thoroughly enjoyable festive season and that 2011 will bring you all you wish for. My laptop did not like me signing in at wi-fi hot spots while we were travelling, so have been unable to post before now.

Health and Happiness to you all for 2011

Piazza del Popolo Rome New Year

This first video will show you the New Year experience in Piazza del Popolo a couple of years ago.
A similar experience in London an hour later!

New Years Eve Auld Lang Syne Music and Fireworks

This song is the traditional one used at New Year in England and this video shows celebrations in London a couple of years ago for New Years Eve.
