There’s a reason why I haven’t posted in awhile. I knew this day was coming and it finally arrived, LAYOFFS. My entire department is being displaced. Some this year, some next year, but everyone is gone.
I of course, was given a date of this year. I didn’t really stress. I just focused on 1) finding a new job 2) figuring out a way to get a month in Argentina, or some foreign country, out of this. The great thing about working for a big company is that gives decent severance packages. My motto
When life hands you lemons, find a way to make it to Rome and get yourself an Italian Ice.
Well a new job has come along. The offer was officially extended 2 days ago. So I won’t be able to escape to someplace far, I am taking a couple of days off to spend time with friends.
Yesterday we took one of those bus tours around the city. The city is full of eye candy, both historical and wearing a cute pair of jeans. I averaged about 100 pictures per hour.
Day 1, PM
After a little nap, we walked from our hotel (15 minutes) to the Spanish Steps. By that time it was dark and you can see how some parts of the city are more gorgeous at night.
Day 1, Dinner
Many people told us that the little “hole in the wall places” had the best food. So we wandered around the city and ended up eating at t some place in a dark, side alley. The food was AMAZING. That pesto sauce was unreal, and the alfredo, red and meat sauces were simply yummy. The ingredients tasted so much fresher and the food gave you the impression that there was a little Italian grandma in the back . Pasta will never be the same again
Day 1, Evening
On our way home, we run into a bunch of men standing on the street. They were celebrating John Carlo s 36th birthday. We spoke to the group and the next thing we knew they reopened the bar (which was the coffee shop earlier) and we had shots with them and took tons of pictures. Because my camera was broken, I only have these shots but post more once my fellow travellers send me theirs
Megan and Marco
We ended the night in a Irish pub, listening to reggae, drinking English cider.
It has come to my attention that I’ve been doing a million and one things but not posting anything new on my blog. I hadn’t been posting because I didn’t think I had anything too exciting going on, well nothing I figured the rest of the world wanted to see. Guess I was wrong, these next couple of post are for you KD……
