So today we also walked down to Piazza delle Repubblica because Crystal wanted to visit a restaurant in Rome that she went to when she was here with her fiance. She's obsessed with the risotto there. I had spaghetti cacio e pepe. Not bad. We basically walked around in circles until it opened because most restaurants do not open until at least 6:30 here, and some as late as 8. Alessio was the name of the place. It started to rain. The crazy umbrella guys then staged their attack once again and came running after us at every corner. Since I am sick, I decided that being in the rain wasn't the best idea ever. So, I haggled that crazy umbrella guy until I could haggle no more. 2 euros for a freaking umbrella! Even AFTER the haggling. Crap.
I have a presentation tomorrow, so we came back earlier than usual. Not to mention, the city is doing work on the metro until next year, so it closes at 9 Sunday-Friday. Boo. Well, not a crazy eventful day...Ciao!
