Egg Pizza

Today was pretty uneventful. We woke up and headed to campus to work on some more paperwork for our Permisso to Stay. Afterwards we headed a place called Osteria. It was Monica, me, and three of my roommates: Mauro, Mark, and Sean. Most of us ended up getting pizza and we were a little surprised at couple of the choices that we had made. I ordered a pizza that said it had artichoke hearts, olives, ham, mushrooms, and egg on it thinking that it would just have all of those ingredients diced on the top of it. I was wrong. It came out and the pizza was split into 5 uneven sections. Each section only had one of the 5 ingredients on it. I wish I would have taken a picture of it because the section that had the egg on it was just a thin slice with a hard-boiled egg cut in half plopped right on top of it. It looked like my pizza had some weird, white growth on it.

This is me outside of Osteria where I got the egg pizza.

Later that day we walked around Trestevere a little bit and then headed home to take a short nap and give our feet a rest. At 7PM we headed to a restaurant called Popi-Popi for a big dinner sponsored by our program. It was 2 and a half hours long and I had the best Tiramisu I have ever had.

Afterwards I headed back to Monica's apartment with her and her roommates and we played cards for a couple of hours. Then I headed home on the number 8.

I know you'll get a lot of advice about places to go and stuff so I'll just give you one: Giolitti's. Its the worlds best gellato place about a block from the pantheon. Its one of those places that is so good that locals even go there despite the tourism. Just so you know, you pay at the register before you order. You also have to be aggressive at the counter. Enjoy! Your life will never be the same again once it hits your lips.
