I apologize for not answering comments as fast as usual, but we are on vacation. For the past 3 nights we were in Rome and today we arrived by train in Florence where I now have free wireless at the lovely Hotel Silla on the south bank of the Arno. I will probably post some pictures in the next few days, but we’re trying to stay off the computer. It’s sunny and gorgeous here.
Will write later, but if you are considering a trip to Rome, here are two restaurants to add to your list — Nino and Da Baffeto, where we had the best pizza in the world.
The pastry/candy/cookie scene is overwhelming. I can’t even talk about it now.
Thanks again for all the tips you left in the comment section of the blood orange juice giveaway :). They’re really coming in handy.
Ciao for now!
