The title is fitting don’t you think?
If there’s anything that my friend Andrea knows how to do best, it’s living the posh life. It’s our last leg of our trip so we decided to splurge a little. Ok, she had to do a little convincing on her part, but I’m glad I caved in. It’s a nice way to end my nearly one month long trip in pure relaxation at the Westin Hotel.
As soon as we arrived at the hotel, Andrea immediately got on the phone and ordered room service. Pastas, burgers and bubblies to celebrate our arrival in Rome. I like her style. We laid in our heavenly beds until 10pm and decided that we had to get out before we waste away in our luxurious room.
So at 10 we dragged our butts out of bed and got ready for a night out in the town, which resulted into me winning this:
Andrea and I went to some pub by the Spanish Steps where we met a group of bar hoppers and decided to join in on the party. They were super young and we felt completely out of place, but we can either stand there awkwardly or…just get in on the fun and pretend that we’re in college all over again. And that is exactly what we did. At one point in the night, the organizer convinced Andrea and I do to a beer chugging contest with 5 other girls. Free beer? Sure, why not. I took one last look at Andrea and said, well….this night took an unexpected turn and we both chugged down our beers. To be fair, it was a tie between Andrea and I. Apparently, San Franciscans are alcoholics and pretty good at chugging down beers. They wanted us to do a tie breaker, but at that point Andrea could tell that I was at my max so she gave me the winning title. Did I mention that I’m too old for this? It was a fun night nonetheless.
The Rome nightlife here starts super late. People have dinner at around 9 or 10 and then head to the bars/clubs after that. I don’t think I can hang for more than a weekend here.
