Continued from Rome Day 1 Part 1.
After resting for a bit in the hotel, I headed back out because I had made plans to have dinner with my new friend A. It’s always nice to have a dining companion.
After about a 15 minute walk, I reached our meeting spot.
I was here first, and as I waited, I was a little worried that maybe I was at the wrong spot and I had no way of contacting her other than email. Life without cell phone is impossible. How did people live back then?
Now, for the food. Long time travel blog readers already know that I usually post tons of food pictures.
Steak. Oh it was so tender and good. The table next to us were travelers too and they asked me if the steak was any good. I gave it a raving review, so they ordered it too. They also gave it a raving review.
We got some complimentary dessert wine at the end. I was jetlagged and tired from walking around so towards the end of dinner, I was about to fall asleep. A shot of this woke me right back up. I can’t say that I liked it. It tasted like wine with a shot of Jager. Ugh.
Dinner was wonderful. It was well flavored, and yet light. Very similar to the food I had in France. The waiters were a hoot as they were all really flamboyant and would crack jokes every chance they get.
Took a different route walking back to my hotel and came across the red light district.
