Looking in the rear view mirror of Day 7, we totally had a Vespa with a view! Now it has really been a true Roman Holiday, that we have bopped about on a Vespa! Although I haven't given her a go yet. I'm not sure if I'm crazy enough to enter the Roman road race. Seriously, you have to be certified if when in Rome you try do drive as the Romans do. Lanes? What lanes?
We rented a Vespa and drove it to the ATP Rome Masters Final yesterday. Rafael Nadal defeated Novac Djokovic 7-6, 6-3 in an uberly fabulous match. They both played so well; and they are two of the most fun personalities to watch. Rafa is such a grinder and Novac is so animated. I love both of them, but was rooting for Rafa since he is the king of clay, and I wanted to see him win on his surface. Plus, Rome was the only clay tournament he lost last year and I wanted him to regain it. (Djokovic won it last year, so it couldn't have been a more perfect finals to get to watch.)
I did take quite a few pictures, but here is the victory shot. RAFA vamosed! Woot!
