Our first day of our Roman Holiday.
We slept so long with the aid of Benedryl and black out curtains that we couldn't figure out if it was midnight or noon when we woke up. Noon it was, and for breakfast we had gelato. From the gelato stand we decided to walk to Trevi fountain, we got lost on the way and ended up seeing the home of the President of Italy. We finally found our way and I tossed a coin into Trevi fountain which ensures my return to Italy, come to think of it Wes did not throw a coin into the fountain so I guess my return trip will be with husband #2:)
After Trevi fountain we stopped for some lunch. We had Rigatoni with Amatriciana sauce (bacon and tomatoes), bruschetta, and aranchini's. We then went a few blocks to see the Pantheon and a church with an amazing mural on the celling.
We headed back to the hotel for Wes to change and head out to some sessions while I rebooted with a quick nap and shower. I then triumphantly navigated my way through the twisty, not well marked streets of Rome alone to the University so I could meet up with Wes and some friends for dinner. We had dinner at a roof top restaurant with breath taking views. I had spaghetti carbonara and Wes had ravioli. One of our friends ordered the Sea Bass and they actually brought it to the table whole and then cut off the head and filleted/deboned it right there.
