Reliving My Moonhoney- Rome Day 2 (9/3/09)

September 3, 2009

Breakfast was more than I expected it to be.  I thought it would be a continental breakfast with coffee/tea and pastries.  Turns out there was a pretty good selection although the eggs and bacon were a bit on the scary side.  Came back to the room, decided what we wanted to do, and started off to go shopping! We ended up getting some decent bar soap from Sabon and some clothes! 

We were going to meet our tour group for dinner.  Dan and I were wondering what the people in the group were going to be like.  Turned out to be some really nice people that we first met in the hotel lobby. We also met Franco, our tour guide, who was a trip and seemed to have been hitting the wine a little before meeting us for dinner.  We had a really nice bus that took us to the restaurant.  Franco told us that every morning when we get on the bus we have to rotate seats so that we get to sit different places while on the tour.  

We got to the restaurant for the Welcome Dinner.  There were singers, an accordion player, and a piano player.  Dinner was really good- Antipasto, Pasta Fagioli soup, different types of pasta, salad, chicken & veal with potatoes, and tiramisu.  Of course there was tons of wine and we had our fair share of it that night! 6AM was the wake up time tomorrow so we went back to the hotel and go back into bed!
