Another day, another change of plans.
Some of our scheduled events for Tuesday were cancelled due to obstacles beyond our control, but we hoped to use the last day in Rome to complete our arranged adventures.
Because our plans changed, the Hofstra Romans had a very relaxing day and enjoyed a large gap of time between class and our last Tuesday at Randy’s. Half of the day’s issue was the fact that the subway workers were on strike, so we did not have that to our disposal. Once we walked to Randy’s, I was ready to chow down. We started off with salami and prosciutto with cantaloupe, something I will dearly miss about Italy. We then had “the best mozzarella cheese” we have ever tasted, according to Randy. This cheese was freshly made Tuesday, and it was made to be super creamy to the point it was almost like the consistency of a water balloon. It was tasty, but I actually enjoyed Monday night’s mozzarella more. Our main course was salad and vegetable and meat lasagnas, which were out of this world. That was followed by yummy cherries, which I had been craving for about a week. I never liked cherries until I had one at Versailles, and now I can’t get enough of them.
The last movie of the trip we watched was a super intense film called Angels and Demons. The main plotline is to defeat the resurgence of the Illuminate, the Vatican’s worst enemy, from killing four cardinals one by one and then blowing up the whole city. It was an incredible movie and the best one we watched out of all our movie nights.
When we finished at Randy’s, we stopped at our favorite gelateria, where I bought a cup of dark chocolate gelato. I just can’t seem to get away from my chocolate cravings on this trip. I then worked on homework and resumes with my classmates. I could not help but think about how much I will miss everyone when we part ways in two days.
