Sniffles abroad

Posted on June 13, 2010

Well, I’ve had an absolutely marvelous trip in Rome so far, the high point of which was probably my birthday yesterday, which involved not only the best risotto ever but also a chocolate cake so good I suspect its consumption is a sin in some minor religions. But this morning I woke up with a cold. 🙁 It promises to be a bad one, too; my throat’s been swelling tighter and tighter throughout the day. Happily, “decongestant” turns out to translate just fine. If I need to spend the next few days in Rome piled up in my bed, writing and hiding from the heat, there are worse things to have happen … and as soon as I get better, I’ll still be in Rome.

Rome adventures included the epic trip to Pompeii two days ago. Only a handful of new photos, but check them out. Will be in touch soon, to either report on my recovery and continuing adventures, or to whine about the sniffles.
