It’s quite late so I will have to catch you up on today’s developments later. Let’s just say I hit Rome and I hit it hard: I am…Supertourist!

So far the gypsies and pickpockets have kept a wide berth.

There is a Sandra Bullock film on the television right now – it’s all dubbed in Italian but I can work out what’s going on. So much for sparkling Hollywood dialogue. The best scene so far involved Ms Bullock saving a Samoyed puppy from the clutches of an eagle.
