Still alive.

A quick message from Roma, where I haven't yet earned to us a keyboard.

First night in Pisa, eaten by mosquitos, so now itch all night in Rome. Yesterday, the Colosseum, today, Borghese gardens and Etruscan stuff. It's bloody hot and it's bloody hard work, as are all holidays.

I 'm sitting on a stool for children, so this post is hard work too. I'm off. Italian broadband is super fast, though, unlike UK'S.

  1. Keep away from the mozzies too. In fact wish I knew how to write 'death to mozzies' in Italian.

  2. Apart from the (h)itches, it sounds great. Have a nice time.

  4. Why on earth are you posting blogs when you are on short holiday? And in Rome. You are worse than Rachel and John. No satisfying life outside the virtual? Worrying times. Would I do the same if I still had a blog. Maybe. Why? It's all madness, madness I say. Well anyway enjoy the weather and the food.

    1. Same reason I do at home - escaping from horrible reality.

  5. We walked for about 4 miles trying to find the Villa Giullia yesterday - the signage is atrocious and I followed an underground metro line - above ground.

    1. Stop grumbling and enjoy yourself.

    2. It's all very well for you to say that. You get treated o the spectacle of someone being thrown from a 4th floor building - this would have been part of the package in ancient Rome, as it is in many other places run by ISIS.

    3. I thought "what a great way to get the dirty washing down, very ingenious", then I realised there was still somebody wearing it..

  10. Just got back from the Vatican, and have come to the conclusion they just carried on where the Caesars left off. All that opulence. No taste whatsoever. I missed an audience the Pope too - he's in Cuba, and he knew I was coming. The bronze Greek boxer is also on loan to the effing US now as well.

    1. Did you meet the one migrant they are taking?

    2. Yes. I gave him Cro's address and said he will be welcome.

    3. I am laughing very very loud sitting here..

  11. I think this could be the last trip to Rome I will make. I had better not throw a coin in the Trevi fountain.

  12. The only reason I am not boring you more than I am is because I have to type standing up, with an erection.

    Ok, I lied about the erection, but it could be arranged if you really want it. Not you though, Rachel, before you get any funny ideas.

    1. Ok, I admit that I had rather too much wine last night, but it is difficult using this keyboard on a high table and low chair.
