bye rome

August 30, 2010 § 2 Comments

we are leaving Rome tomorrow and after I sip a yummy, perfect Italian cappuccino, we are going to florence!

today we enjoyed a slower day of shopping, strolling and sitting near the spanish streps. i enjoyed nutella on a banana for breakfast and we bought our first piece of art in the piazza navona! we hope to find some fun, meaningful little pieces that can serve as more lasting souvenirs on this trip.

we’ve had wifi at our hotel here, making it easy to post but we shall see what the rest of the trip holds in terms of that luxury. many of the plazas have also had wifi.

oh ps, Levi jeans are super expensive and “nice” here! I laugh.

off to Firenze! hopefully more cheese, tomato sauce and chianti await us there!

much love, e&t

Colosseum, roman forum, former jewish ghetto and the charming, lovely trastevere neighborhood with fantastic pizza, outdoor dining and small cobblestone street people watching.

hi from free wifi! we saw the pantheon, st. peters basilica, the sistine chapel and wandered over to the trevi fountain after dinner. successful I’d say, and I think our feet agree. it is hot during the day but so pleasant at night.

dinner was fun as there wasn’t a menu so we were forced to be adventurous. as an added bonus, the sweet old lady of the place hugged me, kissed me and rattled off (what seemed to be sweet words) to me in Italian.

thanks to the great Rick Steves, for lunch we enjoyed fantastic, huge and inexpensive sandwiches on great crusty bread with thick slices of fresh mozzarella and huge thick tomatoes. I’d have to say, aside from the bread, wine and cheese which I expected to be good in Rome, the tomatoes have been aaaamazing.

In another shout out to Rick, we enjoyed his free podcast tours of our sites today. We were SO glad we downloaded them on a random whim before we left; they were personal, well paced and impressively informative! even complete with maps and pictures.

mom, remind me to tell you about the school of Athens and the pantheon’s architecture. Or go look it up, I bet you can figure out why I thought about you! :)

ok, until next time, enjoy my little iPhone pics…

love y’all!

bye!!

we’re baaack! we’re stocking up on tex mex and soaking up time with our little child before the european bar trip event!

*photos all taken with the shake it photo app. it’s pretty much a must download simply for the fun fact that you can shake your phone to help the polaroid “develop.”

just another day in paradise.
