When in Rome...

...eat a lot of gelati. When walking at the same time as eating gelati, the calories in one gelati are immediately negated. If walking uphill while eating gelati, you consume negative calories. This is what Vardy and I have discovered in the past 2 days.

I picked her up at the airport at 7:30am yesterday, presenting her with a red envelope from SLB, which informed her that I would be her knowledgable guide in Roma. She was very excited to see me, but not particularly surprised...I think she might be on to us...nah!

We walked and walked yesterday, taking in the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, and numeous other sights in that vicinity. A very excited Carly went back to Cafe Sant Eustachio, where I had previously had the best coffee of my life, but was disappointed with my un gran caffe this time around. Not to worry, there was plenty of other coffee, bruschetta and gelati to make up for it.

Today, I took Vardy to the Collesseum, the Circus Maximus and we walked, again, all day. It's now 8pm and we haven't stopped since 9am....except to marvel at the wonders of Rome. It's really nice to have someone to share all this with, as last time I was on my own.

Anyways, I was going to upload some fabulous photos from my fantastic new camera, but the internet dude wants to charge me an extra 1 euro to plug in my camera, on top of the 0.75 euro I'm paying for 15 minutes!! So you'll have to wait until my next location to hear more stories and see some photos (I've been getting artistic and everthing!)

I get the feeling another red envelope will be making an appearance, and Vardy will be finding out where she'll be going next, which means you will too...

catch me if you can...
