Lost in Translation

Today was a day that can be best said was “Lost in translation”. That being said, even with the few words and phrases we knew, we were able to get by on our first day in Rome after being sent out by ourselves within an hour of our plane landing. Going on “fumes” with 8 hours of sleep within a 48 hour span of time, we were on a mission to:
  1. retrieve money from a local ATM
  2. eat lunch at an authentic restaurant where we ordered from a menu not printed in English
  3. capture some key footage for B-roll and getting lost a zillion times in the process... and yes we had a map
  4. shake off tired feet and eventually took a cab back to the hotel after more than 7 hours wandering around the city to make it in time for dinner
  5. find the best gelato the city offered
We did it all and capped the night with a five-course meal and all the vino (wine) one can drink. Our tummy was thankful. Tomorrow we venture into the Tuscany region. We will visit the small town of Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis and the Basilica named after the patron saint. Check out some other exciting pictures.
