Week V

I managed to give myself food poisoning on Tuesday by eating a meat sandwich that had been sitting out far too long. I made a fully recovery and even managed to snap a few pictures this week:

Week IV

We had a restful weekend, here at the AA. Monday was a holiday in Rome. We’re in the middle of a heatwave here in much of Western Europe with temperatures a few degrees shy of 100˚, so we didn’t do much besides lazing around the AA and reading.
