December 2006 - Rome, Italy - Farewell to Classmates

We spent a good part of this week saying good bye to our school friends and our neighborhood, Trastevere.

Here is Kenny with our teacher Federica.

Here are some pics of our class reading poems written by our fellow classmates.

We also went out to dinner with 2 of our classmates - John (from London) and Juliana (from N.E. Germany).

Here we are at il Convivio Troiano, a Michelin-starred restaurant near Piazza Navona. The food is superb and the service is even better. We particularly loved the waiter whose job it is to walk around and shave an enormous white truffle over certain dishes.

And here we are at Myosotis, a rustic Italian but cuisinee restaurant also in the Piazza Navona area.

After our Swedish classmates (Ana & Klara) took their final Italian exam, we took them out for drinks at Campo dei Fiori and dancing at La Maison, one of the two nightclubs in Rome's historic center.

Here's Kenny with Ana on the left and Klara on the right. Unfortunately, we could not snap a picture without some random dude forcing his way in. We have no idea who this guy is.

Here's a shot of us with Klara and the English guy who tagged along from Sloppy Sam's - our first stop in Campo dei Fiori - and some other random guy that jumped into the picture at the last second.

Finally, an inebriated Kenny threatens to steal this sporty "moto" from its poor unsuspecting owner who foolishly left it unattended on the sidewalk in the wee hours of the morning.
