Easter Weekend

We had a lovely Easter weekend this year, Sunday was spent cooking,eating and hanging out with our friends, Nigel and Isalena. We have known N & I since 1985 as they were customers in our first restaurant in New Zealand. Nigel who had just finished his Architect degree took on the job to design and oversee another restaurant we had just bought and when it was finished we bought himself and his girlfriend Isalena an airline ticket to Italy. That was the last we saw of them though we heard that they were living in Rome!
We decided when we arrived here to look them up in the phone book and were thrilled to hear that they were still here after 17 years and with 3 beautiful children. Even after so long it is nice to be able to pick up where we left off, though with Nigels busy schedule (he has just finished working on the controversial Ara Pacus museum project) it is hard for him to find free time.

Easter Monday was spent with friends who were visiting from New Zealand, the girls Madeleine and Frances have been friends with our girls since primary school.
After lunch in Frascati we all trooped off into Rome to show them some of the sights, it was a fabulous warm day and they were in awe at all the History around them (the perfect tourists!).
We finished the day at 'Gusto' our favourite pizzeria, absolutely exhausted.
