I’ve been in Rome 24 hours and I think it funny, my room is the size of a box. You can just imagine my face when he showed me my room last night. I sort of spluttered…. And I paid for an executive room!!
The internet doesn’t work in the room either. I sort of got an idea that there was a problem when everyone was in the lobby with their computers.
‘Free Wi fi’ in the rooms it advertises.
I mentioned the problem to the man behind the desk this morning. ‘Why doesn’t it work’? He asked.
“I guess there is no internet”. I said.
“But why is there no internet”? He said sharply.
“I have no idea” I said in surprise. (Sort of it's your hotel honey, not mine)
An hour later he said I should move toward the door to get better internet…!!! The door is very close to this little desk… what do I do lean on the door handle?
He then offered to shift me to a room with real internet.
BUT I weighed up the fact that I actually have a one of two large balconies in the hotel. My door opens out and it makes the room larger just by the fact I can use that space and sit in the sun and listen and watch Rome below.
So the lobby it is for communication and business.
Why am I here in Rome?
I’m here by invitation of the US Embassy to the opening of an exhibition ‘World without Hunger’ for the United Nations. I am proud to be part of the exhibition.
It promises to be a great show and this evening I’m actually working on my after dinner presentation.
Class is full and it will be an exciting adventure in the art of thread painting.
Bless my amazing Personal Assistant Roz, she has kept the notes and requests coming and all is prepared for the next four programs.
I do believe I’m going to be home for all of December and January. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I still have a lot share from the Show in France, the Australian Exhibition was outstanding and I took photos and video of it all.
I loved the Russian Fashion Parade and the other exhibitions.
I’ll get round to it eventually but tomorrow I’m walking in Rome.
My friend Luana arrives tomorrow night and we have lots to catch up on.
