Rome! Day 2

We've found that the city here is the world's biggest mall. For every bakery, pasty shop, butchery, fruit & vegetable market in Paris, there is a clothing store in Rome. Neither of us being particulary of the shopping type, Kevin found a place to rent a bike from (unfortunately not a scooter) and rode around the city, through a park or two, up a mountain, etc. I walked around, ate a lot of gelati (Italian ice cream 10x better than any I've had in the states EXCEPT for Guernsey Dairy -- but it's just completely different), and took a much needed nap.

We met up in the evening and had a dinner of fabulous food -- homemade spinach ravioli in a walnut cream sauce and salmon in something, and then wandered around the city at night taking bad, blurry pictures:

  1. I do not enjoy the mall here but would like the mall there I think.
