We just settled in to our hotel in Rome and I’m happy to report that we have free internet access. Whew! I was starting to get the shakes!
I don’t have much to say about money today other than that Europe is a pretty expensive continent. Compound that with the fact that my currency is worth less than the native one and it all adds up quickly.
In fact, we had a bit of a situation where we ran out of Euros on our “cash passport” which is a reloadable mastercard with a european-style chip in it. The crisis is averted but the thought of being disconnected from your money on a different continent is a scary one.
We spent the last few days in Barcelona which is a beautiful city with a lot of delicious food to eat and sites to see. If you like art, be sure to check out the Picasso museum which is also free on the first Sunday of the month. Eat lots of “tapas” and remember: dos mas cervesas, por favor. Muy bien!
Now that I have the net, I’ll try to post again this week. In the meantime, anyone know any good restaurants north of the Vatican? Ciao!
