Viterbo e dintorni

After a belated Birthday Party for nonna, this weekend we celebrated Thanksgiving by taking Friday off and driving to Viterbo, north of Rome.

Tanti Auguri nonna!

Siamo andati a vedere i Momix, "ballerini matti".

Roma, Roma, ROoooooomaaa

We had a great weekend in the center thanks to our friends Michele and Clementina who loaned us their apartment which normally gets rented out on AirBnB in Campo de'Fiori. It was awesome to pretend we were not tourists with our own apartment. We saw the Colisseo, il Pantheon, and sat back and relaxed for a change too. Weather was kind of rainy for a bit but we will loved every minute of it. Last but not least, our favorite little old car, the Fiat 500.

Halloween... li mortacci!

Yes we did celebrate Halloween! Penelope was fortunate enough to have remembered her Elsa costume which she had received for her birthday back in July when we were still in NY and Lucia winged it as a strega.
Here we have their little second cousin, Nicole, the daughter of Giovanni Brunetti.
We celebrated with a bunch of Americans after trick or treating up and down Via Merulana, Roma.

 Ice skating or in italian ... pattinare...con la cugina Elena

And hanging out with Mamma while Alessandro was back home in NY for work in Villa Borghese. We walked all over that day, finally a chance to lie down...
