Day 31, Pizza Month 2011 - Pizzeria de Antonio e Mirella (Rome, Italy)
DAY 31: OCTOBER 31st, 2011
LOCATION: Pizzeria de Antonio e Mirella (Rome, Italy)
ORDER: 1 slice of cheese
GUEST: Robin Rothman
1. Robin and I went on a biking tour of Rome. The whole city is a museum. It's also a testament to how important it is to be on the winning side of things. Win or your big beautiful structures will be ripped apart and used for the big beautiful structures of the people that won.
2. One of the places we visited on the bike tour was the Pantheon. Not only is it a beautiful structure but it is also where Queen Margherita (of pizza Margherita fame) and her husband, King Umberto I, are buried.
3. The Vatican is truly amazing. Thousands of years of artifacts and paintings by or of three out of four Ninja Turtles.
4. On the plane ride home (Nov. 1), AlItalia had the audacity to serve pizza as the in flight food. I couldn't believe after 31 days of pizza, this is what they-but then I ate it.
