This weekend was full of food. All delicious of course.
Friday night dinner with Nancy and my apartmentmate, Joe.
I had Rigatoni al Agnello
I ate meat. It was delicious. I don’t really feel bad. I have no intention of turning into a carnivore but I love lamb. And honestly, when in Rome…
Then the next day, Nancy
and I walked around Trastevere. It was lovely! Great view!
Along the way we stopped for lunch.
Pomodori e mozzarella
In America we have ketchup and mustard in packets on every table. In Italy, they have olive oil and balsamic vinegar in packets.
A much better choice if you ask me.
Later that night, we had a gathering at our apartment.
Lots of cheese! and wine…
Then this morning, Nancy and I headed to the Vatican with the intention of going to the Vatican Museum (since it’s free the last Sunday of every month).
Instead, we hung out with the Pope
There he is!
After some more walking around and lunch, I headed home and took a nap. I woke up with a sore throat.
Please don’t let me get sick! My internship needs to start ASAP!

Very fun! The last time I was in Italy, we happened to be in Rome on Palm Sunday and even though we were supposed to go to Pompeii, a few of us stayed behind for the mass. It was without question a once in a lifetime experience.
I wanted to say that I really love reading about your Roman adventures! And that I really, really wish they had those oil & vinegar packets here in the U.S.!! Ciao, Bella!
I especially enjoy reading your blog posts now that you are in Rome. The food looks awesome.
BTW – Laura and I both got sick after the trip to Florida, started with a sore throat for both of us. I hope you didn’t get what we got. 😦 I’m still sick…
Keep having fun for Laura and me!
The Rigatoni al Agnello looks spectaular, as does the artichokes.
I love the fact they they have individual packets like that—send some to me 🙂
Very cool about seeing the man and that the museum is free on Sundays. I love living in Italy through your eyes!
