I went with an Italian friend to see Flags of Our Fathers today, which opened in Rome (in English).
Afterward we bought slices and chunks of wondrous things and bottles to wash them down. Joining us was an English priest who is in our residence.
Among the goodies consumed were olives from Gaeta, a stout percorino, some gorgonzola, prosciuto di San Daniele, sopressata "Romana", some great little spicy peppers stuffed with tuna under oil, and a very nice sagrantino for the washing down purposes. It was fine. We enjoyed music from Johnny Cash to J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
