We have now spent a total of 47 days in Rome and 32.3 weeks in Italy. Those times have been spread over eight different months, those not experienced are April, November, December and January.
We did not watch any television at all, far too many other things to do. Before leaving home we did think we would watch t.v. to help improve our language skills.
We saw Bob Geldof at Dubai airport on the way over and our friend Barb, ex Norfolk Island, on the return trip.
There were 61 days when we could have had gelati in Italy. We actually had gelati 49 times and I tasted 47 different flavours. On every occasion you can have two or three 'gusti' (flavours) depending on the size you buy. Pistachio is the favourite of Sicilians. My favourites were Malaga, white chocolate, pineapple and ginger, salted caramel, cherry & amaretto, Costa Morena ... o.k, I liked them all!
Our favourite gelateria was Cafe Alise in Castiglione del Lago, closely followed by Fatamorgana Gelato in Trastevere.
