... Italian motorbike racers.
They did 2 laps around the square and that was awesome.
And then we just walked around town for awhile.

... It was actually very good! They have wonderful sandwiches everywhere you go. They press them on a panini maker. It makes the bread crunchy and lots of melted cheese. Yum! Our drink of choice (besides wine and Peroni) is espresso. The quick energy boost has been extremely helpful;) I'm very pleased with how safe we've felt in Rome. I hope it's the same in the other cities we're visiting. I wish I could say everyone has been nice, but that's not the case. Ha! But it's not ...
