Today marks the start of my fourth week in Rome. Woo hoo! Time is going by so quickly.
This week should be a good one. Tomorrow night, we’re having some friends over for taco night. The Mexican food scene in Rome is pretty much non-existent, so we’re taking matters into our own hands and cooking up a south-of-the-border feast. Then, Thursday, I’m attending an Italian wine class at Vino Roma. I know almost nothing about Italian wine, so I am really hoping I’ll become at least a little more knowledgable while I’m here. And, Friday, our first American visitors arrive for the weekend. I can’t wait!
Now that I’ve been here for a little bit, what’s the thing I miss most about America, you ask? It is, by far, having a dryer. I know that’s a really lame housewife type thing to say, but it seems like the apartment is always half taken up by the drying rack. Clothes take literal days to dry, so I’m constantly feeling like the air in the apartment is really damp. What I wouldn’t give to be able to do to back-to-back loads of laundry and be done with dirty clothes for the week in one afternoon!
As for my husband, he really misses having a car. I’m torn: I love walking everywhere because it makes me feel less bad about eating so much all the time, but it does make getting anywhere in a timely manner pretty much impossible. Having a car in Rome totally terrifies me, though. The drivers are crazy!
Today I passed an adorable little car that almost made me change my mind.
If someone happened to give me this car, I wouldn’t turn it down.
I’m dying over the license plate! Love.
