On May 31st the lady who lives below us (with Jakob) threw us a little bit of a going away party for us to see the neighbors and everything because we were leaving the Rome area that week. We had grilled fish, grilled meats, and grilled cheese (actual cheese, on the grill-not the sandwich). We also had some pizzas that they cooked in their outdoor oven. The night was finished off with a variety of desserts and a fruit torture device. 🙂
Food getting ready to be set out. She and I created that fruit thingy in the back and we were quite proud of it notwithstanding the fact that it almost took a nosedive for the floor and it looked like it might hurt the floor.
Cheeses to be grilled, then eaten hot and stringy. Yum!
A type of bread with spinach and cheese in some and prosciutto and cheese in others.
Everybody digging in and socializing.
Same as above. 🙂
Checking the various meats and fishes for doneness. Alex, Andrew, Cristina, and another friend.
On Friday, June 14th in the morning we went to Turin. Dad actually went to talk with someone about work and so while he was in there we all went to the Juventus Stadium. Alex (a Juventus fan) trotted around grinning while we took pictures.
After that we went into the town (we picked dad up first…. we contemplated leaving him but we didn’t want any axe murderers to get him. We had already bought his tickets after all! 😉 )
We first went into the National Museum of Cinema. (which didn’t allow you to take pictures. and quite honestly was only “eh”)
The outside, all we were able to take a picture of.
The duomo where the Shroud is kept.
Where the Shroud is. The box above it was where the royal family would hear the mass. The Shroud is only actually on display once every blue moon. Usually it is covered.
A cool shot of a motorcycle that Andrew got.
The famous bar of Turin that never closes.
The river Po.
It is a popular tradition to stand on the bull in one of the main Piazzas of Turin.
We somehow always seemed to end up at this street corner… Hmm… Is someone trying to hint something…?
