Greetings from Rome! I don't know if any of you are out there on a Sunday cruisin' the blogs, but if you are, hello! Or ciao!
This is just a mini post. I'll have more info and pictures for you next week when I pull everything together. In the meantime, the above is a photo from Piazza Malta. There's a keyhole in the Piazza, and if you peek through it, you can see St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. The dome of the basilica is a bit blown out in this photo, but you get the idea.
Below is part of my lunch. A fried artichoke from Roma Saporito. Crispy leaves (like artichoke potato chips) on the outside and a nice soft center. It was impressive. We got the tip to go to this particular restaurant from watching Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations.
Also, I just may have picked up the Italian Mystery Prize today. So, post a comment on the blog to be enetered to win!
