Oh, so many comments...but I'll try to limit myself ;)

What's with the "baby" thing? They just think they can throw that in anywhere and it's appropriate? How odd!

The graffiti was definitely interesting; mortadella bum was quite impressive indeed!

The food pics are fabulous, even the fries (I haven't had any McD's fries in about a year, and then, about 2 years before that)! The gnocchi is boiling as I type thank you very much.....

Napoleon sure was weird, huh? I love how the bed is all tucked in there, you know, so he could literally dance till he dropped, I suppose?

And last but certainly not least. The panty machine. Wow. Although for 2 euro, well, I guess you can't go wrong.

Great report :)


I love your blog, the photos are fantastic, the food pics had me drooling over my keyboard!
Seeing you've just been visting Napoleon's house, you might like to know the famous palindrome he is reputed to have said:
"Able was I ere I saw Elba".


Awesome blog - bounced here from the cat food blog. I love good foods, wines and love to cook so this is cool. Even cooler because I will be in Monte Carlo, Tuscany, Venice and Rome starting 4/22/07 Yay!


Thanks for all the comments!

Sognatrice, I can't imagine what's up with the baby rental, though perhaps it comes in handy for parties? Those were our first McDonald's fries in a couple of years, also - and I don't think we'll be reapeating the experience anytime soon. Hope your gnocchi was good!

Herschelian, thanks for the palindrome - lemme return the favor. "A man, a plan, a canal, Panama." Perhaps not as topical.

John, I hope you have a GREAT time in Italy! How long are you planning to be here?



Great post!! I love your eye for the ludicrous - the "OK Baby" is priceless! We won't even discuss the mortadella bum. I am also a sucker for gnocchi & gorgonzola - one of God's better creations, calories be damned. I always wonder when I visit palaces how the hell the poor royals got any sleep - I mean if you heard a noise in the far corner of your bedroom, you'd need to take a packed lunch in order to go and investigate - what's with that?! Look forward to your next post!

Boots in the Oven

Thank you, Jeanne! Sorry about being incommunicado - we've had guests in town. Hope to get another post up later tonight.

And I'm totally with you on the gnocchi with gorgonzola.
