Sitting here, cozy at home, excited for the holidays. So want to write about the trip, but also feeling pretttttty jet lagged. Here’s a quick memory from each day-in case it takes a while to sit down and document the trip:
A very quiet and dignified group of Swedish gentleman enjoying their dinner at Tehran Grill (delicious food!).
Walking through the grounds at the Villa Borghese before sunset.
Cut, peeled, and shaped artichokes soaking in water and lemon juice. These beauties would soon become hearty Carciofi alla Romana, the antipasti from our cooking class in Trastevere.
Walking down one of many, many curvy, narrow, charming streets in Trastevere after a buffalo pizza at Dar Poeta.
Pausing to listen to Rick Steves’ audio guide describe the Coliseum’s gruesome history.
Ha! Yesterday was a quiet travel day. Took a photo of Norwegian Air’s routes-already dreaming about a return trip!
