Roma-n-esque.

And take it as you please. The title I mean. Anyway, four days of Rome was packed with all sorts of fun. It was also actually the first time of Iggy and me to go to some city (that's more than three hour away that is LOL) just to have and to just ignore all the tourist must-do's. Okay, we slightly failed that mission because we ended up in the Vatican Museum, but just because there were exactly zero people at the cash desks. So, it was basically just Rome and three days of parties in The Gay Village and then a really great beach party in Ostia, Rome's ancient port and these days just kilometres and kilometres of sandy beaches. Iggy, Riccardo and me really enjoyed a long weekend. And - a GREAT bonus - Scott boobooirl  and his bf Frank also happened to be in Rome at the same time!!! I was really happy to have the chance to meet them. Yes, it's a small, small world. And it's a fun world. And I really like it like that. I am adding some "people pics" here and a few more are, of course, already Flickr'd, so if you please, let me take you with me........



Lo spettacolo.




Frank, Scott boobooirl  and Riccardo outside of Coming Out.


More red Iggy on some ancient bridges. After Verona, this seems to be become a theme. :)


Riccardo: "Come! Still taking pics?" Iggy: "Oh, leave it. He will come." :)


Piazza Navona.


I really like this picture.


Ok, a short explanation. I wanted to know what time it was and since I was too lazy to dish out my mobile and since Riccardo wears watches, I wanted to take a look on his. And then I just blurted: "Dammit, you and your female watch, I can't even see a thing on it." It took some of his breath away, but he soon realised I am just joking, that I am not really acido, as he said once, and we made quite some jokes out of that one. Hence the pinkie. Yes, it's a proper Cartier, and yes, he is so sickingly tanned and I am so sickingly pale in comparison. LOL


At the beach in Ostia. Aren't they just..... überadorable?

I like red Iggy. A lot. :)

LOL Riccardo and Iggy... such different responses in the side-by-side photos, body language and expressions and all! :)

And yes, there is SUCH contrast between Riccardo and you! LOL Even Iggy looks much whiter that him. *is amused*

I appreciate the beauty of the sky and the place in the first photo, and the bunch of cuties in the rest, but... I want me a Tomaz photo too. :)

Iggy looks good in red, yes. :) Well, side-by-side... Iggy knows I can be tiring, Riccardo was still learning. They had to wait me a lot. LOL

Once again, you spoil us with lovely photos :)
Despite my fella being Aussie-Italian and me growing up in Europe, I've never been to Italy! Must go sometime.

Now, that's a cardinal sin, mind you. Skipping Italy, yeeesh. :)
