Dean,

Firstly, I didn't correct John, I just made him know that he had made a pertinent observation on the wrong thread ( of which fact he was unaware), likely because he hit the wrong spot. His post was absolutely correct, but as inadequate as if I were now and here talking about wearing ir not a jacket and tie to go to a restaurant in Europe ( another thread whose subject is " To bring a jacket and tie or to risk it, that is the question..." , so don't bother with John and I, we do sort our problems out for ourselves.

Secondly, you and your recently found apartment in Trastevere- I see how enthusiastically you talk about it, and I'm not saying that the apartment is bad. I could have said nothing about your post, but I did. Sorry. I just felt that if someone was asking about bananas and where to find them, telling him how good apples are right now wouldn't be appropriate, but he can always change his mind about apples and bananas, hence, again, accept my apologies.

Regards,

Surlok

I like your apples and banannas reply. I am in the food business. and in our stores, if the banannas are green and hard, we take it as our duty to tell someone about how delicious the apples are. Then its up to them to decide weather to but the apples or the bannanas.

I see a huge number of people travel and never get any reality of where they visit. They stay in the fanciest of hotels and eat at well known and expensive restaurants and do all the major tourist spots. They often come home and complain about how dissapointed they are in what they did. I love to turn people on to a different way to travel. Many people, even experienced travelers do not know or have never taken advantage of staying in real neighborhoods and interacting with real folk living their lives. Now don't take me wrong, I love to eat at good restaurants and some of these have a huge number of travelers in them (La Rosetta in Rome is a great example). But I have never had as good a time anywhere in Italy in a hotel as I have staying in the same area in an appartment, agritourismo etc.

Again, its apples and banannas, but ain't choice wonderful.

By the way.... it is the height of apple season right now.......

We were supposed to stay at the Hotel D'Inghilterra (sp?) which is supposed to be very nice w/ a good location, but due to 9/11 we didn't make it to Rome. Last year we stayed at the Grand Hotel Minerva (or whatever they call themselves now) and that was very nice (very exp. breakfast & not worth it)with a great location right near the Pantheon. After the 1st breakfast at the hotel, once we did some exploring we ate the remaining breakfasts on the Pantheon plaza. Great place to people watch.

Hi! This is John G. Again. And again. I in no way was trying to disparage Surlock. I like Surlock alot and I was trying to be funny. In fact, I know that the next time Im in Rio, Surlock and I are going to to Copacabana Beach and drink caiparhinas until we pass out. Love you, mean it. Beijinhos.

You bet we are, John, as I'll show you some nice gay bars, and also Ipanema beach and Leblon, and the best spots in town.

Cheers, or saude!

My wife and I stayed at the Excelsior in June 99. It is an elegant place and our lowest price room, although slightly run down, was very large and luxurious. If price is not a concern, I would recommend their Junior Suite - we looked at one and it was magnificent. In June 99, the rack rate was 1,300,000 Lire per day plus 10% VAT. The hotel is in a nice area near the U.S. Embassy. Check it out at luxurycollection.com.
