Aside from the food (which was incredible) another highlight of the evening was talking to real-life Romans. Although Andrea and Milvia have lived all over the world (Central America, South America, Africa), they were both born, and now live, in Rome.
- The Colosseum was actually built by four contractors, the fourth contractor cut corners and was sloppy hence when there was an earthquake in Rome, that one side fell down and thus today you don't see the full Colosseum
- There is an Italian walnut liquor called Nocino, the walnuts are picked every year on the 24th of June only (Tanbay's birthday!) and the liquor is only made in multiples of seven walnuts (what)?
- Naples is much, much older than Rome, thanks to the fact that it has a seaside port (unlike Rome). They said I would fit in there well, but Tanbay probably wouldn't. We are going there next week so we will let you know!
