A Quiet Sunday in Rome

After breakfast, Brad and I wandered off for a walk. First we headed to the big nearby bookstore, where we each bought a new pair of reading glasses, and I got a cookbook and book of "Agritourismo in Italia".

We visited my favorite coffee spot, Sant Eustachio, and bought a couple bags of coffee to bring home. (I am hoarding it now.)

At 11:30, we met Jan, Les, Maureen and Itz to walk to Travestere. We walked over the Ponte Sisto, and all met in Piazza Santa Maria Travestere for a cold drink.

Everyone then wandered on their own, exploring the Travestere neighborhood, or having lunch.

Brad and I wandered, then stopped for lunch at a busy trattoria when the food looked good. I had a great carbonara, and Brad had some fettucini with a meat ragu.
