Sharing Rome

I had lunch with fellow blogger Aaron last Friday - as I mentioned in an earlier post he's here for a week indulging in his passion for travelling, photography and food.

We met up at Piazza Navona and strolled over to the Borgo - Aaron loves walking - for Bresaola con Rucola with a splash of olive oil and lemon juice, Spaghetti alla Carbonnara, a not bad house white and coffee. We skipped the dolce but did indulge in gelato as we wandered up Corso Vittorio Emanuale towards Piazza Venezia.

Romus and Remus do pranzoAs always Aaron has taken and posted an incredible series of pictures of his wanderings:
Rome Day 1
Rome Day 2
Rome Day 3
Rome Day 4
Rome Day 5

And Aaron's description of his month in Naples a few years back has me intrigued enough to overcome any quams I've developed from reading Roberto Saviano's Gomorrah, Italy's Other Mafia. We may just head down that way for a few days towards the end of the month.
