and this is what the romans do! :)
we slept until noon today. we were up late last night--walking around outside until about two, and then reading our guide books to figure out what we wanted to do today! so we ate breakfast for lunch, and i guess we're doing this instead of a siesta this afternoon, since we figure we already had one this morning!
we never know what time it is. neither of us owns a watch, and although we have my cell phone with (which is my primary timepiece!), it can't find service here! and so we wander around, always kind of wondering what time it is. it's a bit disorienting. we've entertained the idea of buying a watch here, or at least a clock, but then we wonder if it's maybe good for us to be so unscheduled...
it's also really hot here. i don't know what we were thinking, but we expected it to be - i don't know - fall here, i guess. and we definitely packed for a minnesota fall. but it's like minnesota july here. lovely weather, but not for most of the clothes we brought! and it seems that jeans and a t-shirt is quite an acceptable outfit here, contrary to what expected. so, needless to say, we're already recycling items in our suitcase!
