Italy: Wilder Style

On our third day in Rome, Patrick had the swell idea to eat "in." So to create the perfect meal, we headed to the Mercato Esquilino:

Talk about fresh off the truck, this place was a feast for the eyes! It's the largest covered market in Rome and the produce puts everything here to shame. For about 16 Euro, we purchased pasta, veggies, EVOO, Parmesan, cantaloupe and focaccia. Later that evening as we sat down to enjoy our gourmet meal, it was all made even more perfect by the chimes ringing from Santa Maria in Trastevere:

And the accordion player serenading us outside our window.
(That's Patrick enjoying our feast!)
