August 2006 - Rome, Italy - Day 7

We spent most of the day working on formatting our blog. In the evening, we went for a walk and discovered a wonderful Korean restaurant called Kio Rio. The Korean food was even better than in Korean town in Manhattan. Kenny and I are thrilled to have this little jewel right on San Cosimato square across from our apartment. We were also thrilled to be the only non-Koreans in the restaurant. Imagine eating in a restaurant in Rome that is packed with Korean people speaking Korean.
What a great break from everything Italian! Of course we took an after dinner stroll to Trastevere's center square - Piazza Santa Maria - and ate gelato for dessert. As a result of the August holidays (Ferie Agosto), our neighborhood is jumping even on Sundays at midnight. We're still not sure what they're celebrating but it seems like a good excuse to close everything and party everyday.

Here is a shot of some performance artists (2 girls from Barcelona with a boom box and a helmet) with little talent but a lot of spirit doing their thing at the Piazza Santa Maria.
