Took some more pictures, but they're pretty boring. Today was the big business meeting, that is, the purpose of our freakin' trip. But now it's all pleasure. My presentations went okay. That is, I didn't make a total fool of myself. Afterwards we all went to an extremely nice restaurant (paid by the people puttin this whole thing together) and ate our way through several courses and 4 different types of wine. They were all really good, especially the dessert wine, and I'm pretty buzzed right now.

And the pasta really is better here. So fresh.

Tomorrow my manager, another dude and I are going on a walking tour. Going to go see the colloseum. Evidently it is inevitable that I will pickpocketed, so I will let you know when that happens.

Talked to an IBMer from Ireland for a long while at dinner. Evidently Harp is primarily an export beer that no one drinks there anymore. How sad. Also, he's from County Cork, where Murphy's is prefered over Guiness. He claims that if you tap a coin on the side of a glass of Murphy's and a glass of Guiness, one makes a deeper tone. He wouldn't tell me which.

And now I've only to stay up 1 more hour to watch the debates on CNN. Hope I got the time right.

All the best.

P.S. I've heard American Pie on the radio twice since I've been here.
