I’ll post some quick comments about my recent Italy trip. I took notes on the go, on trains or in hotel rooms. I’ll probably edit these heavily unless there is a hue and cry to post my notes in a fuller form, as most of my notes were not necessarily about food and wine.
Been up for 38 hours straight. Connecting flight delayed 2+ hours for hydrolic leak to landing gear. A hard piece of luggage fell on my head from the overhead and my head is still sore!
All very tired but in good spirits. Had a nice Margarita pizza and 1/2 carafe of red house wine at a pizzeria near Porgeza hotel in Roma for € 15,50, not bad. Sat outside, nice and cool at night. Very good, just what we needed to end a long day. The house wine in most of these places is quite good.
