After our battle defeating the longest queue I ever seen in my life, at least for once I stepped in my feet into san pietro and sistine chapel.
After wandering around Rome in 2 days, I really thought that the Romans were obsessed with flamboyant design.
Below, my attempt to do an HDR.
My boy is not very impressed with the amount of waiting we do. I didn't blame him, it's extremely boring even for adults.
The italian are a fine art expert. I don't know how Michael Angelo did this, but I am sure it's uncomfortable to paint upside down.
Unfortunately, their state of the art went a little bit too far. They use anything as their canvas.
Okay, back to the real topic, the italian design :
And I don't know what is this, probably someone really obsessed with women.
On the other side, the Italian or rather, Romans, loved bloodshed battle (even though now it's already replaced by various MTV concert) and therefore Colosseum stand in it's majestic build.
But Italian also love doing crazy stuff, like get married in front of the public. This wedding was actually broadcasted on radio 105 FM at the very same minute.
Can you spot them on the picture below?
Talking about passion for sports the italian really have it all. They even try to grow Ronaldo's hair!
Not only good looking women and men exist in this country, you can see the most glam looking bags and shoes, and from fashion to hat and gloves.
But I would say the italian obsessed of food the most. But unlike the common belief that Italian food is basically made of basil leaves and sundried tomato, we had discovered otherwise.
Most of spaghetti, pasta and pizza we tried has nothing to do with that at all (nonetheless taste good), in fact they use loads of garlic and olive. (Below : the nicest olive bread I tasted in our journey)
When we were in Napoli (Naples) we had a previledge to try the best Neapolitan pizza in the world, which allegedly Brad Pit even get there to get pizza. The city itself has not much to offer rather than big pile of rubbish or getting yourself a chance to meet a real mafia.
(Napoli, where you can taste the real italian way of life and cuisine, and here is the view from my window).
The place is a bit dingy for it's reputation, and there merely 2 selection of pizza. However, the length of queue confirm the title.
Unlike normal pizza, the Neapolitan are thin crusted. Really think that you have to fold it when you eat it. But the smell and the taste beat Pizza Hut anydays. I am sure after this trip, no pizza will taste as good in my mouth!
And someone is definetely born to be italian.
Finger linkin good.
After our 5 days episode in Italy, my son is fluent to count 1 to 10 in italian. Complete with the accent! Probably these italian food do some good.
