We had a good laugh today wandering around Rome in the crisp, cold sunshine. What does a half unemployeed couple with no extra money do for Christmas? Go shopping on Via Condotti, have a nice lunch outside, and come back to our hood with three shopping bags for some afternoon wine. We started shopping at 10:00 and returned at 4:00. This is the life.
We took a nap, then had friends over for some wine (Rosella and Amir), and Jerry and Paul arrived. We enjoyed a great dinner while the boys relaxed and unpacked. I had spaghetti cacio e pepe and roasted maiolino, while Brad enjoyed his stuffed zucchini blossoms with anchovies and veal saltimbocca. It was a great day! I even have a large Furla shopping bag in my room!
