Last time from Italy

All right, a quick note as I am back to using dubious internet cafes once again.

1. We have a new passport, so I can leave the country. And who knew, but emergency passports are white instead of blue. They actually look much nicer than the regular blue ones. Cathy is jealous, but not jealous enough to lose her own passport to get one. And, of course, I look like an axe murderer in the picture.

2. Just poked around Rome a bit today. Hit the Spanish Steps, the Fountain at Trevini and took it easy. It is our last day here, but that does not mean we have to beat ourselves silly.

3. We are now off to have supper at our favourite place to eat in Italy so far...a little outdoor cafe that always seems packed, but that might have to do with the good food and a decent red wine. You know, we never really did find a good red wine while here. Odd, I know, but there you are.

4. Next update will likely be from Iqaluit. Going to do a quick resupply in Ottawa, try and see the new Batman and Cathy is going to relax in her first bath tub in more than three weeks. With jets. And bubbles. I occasionally plan these things well.

Ciao from Italy...

You know... (I think I may have posted this when I was writing about Greece)... We had some terribly disappointing wines when we were traveling too.

Maybe France just has the European monopoly.
