    Hey John, enjoying your blog posts and too bad you left Longetevere Fitness. Still spinning away.

      Great to hear from you, George. Thanks for reading me. My new gym isn’t as nice as Trastevere Fitness but it’s a five-minute walk and for me, gyms are all location, location, location. It’s kind of scruffy. Weights are all over the place and it’s hard to find collars. Locker room is really tired. But it works. Hey, I’ve put on two badly needed kilos so I won’t complain. What’s new with you? Drop me a line at johnhenrome@gmail.com.

    Hi John! Always love reading your posts. However, my experience at the Terrazza Borromini was sub-par— I wonder if it’s changed? We were very excited to have a special night in Rome with that fantastic view over the city. As it turned out, I could have just been at a crowded US place — I was so disappointed with the blaring 80s (and earlier) American music. If you want to go to Rome and have a romantic evening– and listening to Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin is your thing, then this is the place. It was the furthest thing from feeling like you were in Italy. In fact, there was an opera concert below with amazing music, and the Terrazza just turned up Marvin Gaye to drown it out — Unbelievable! To add insult to injury –be prepared for $25 cocktails. One good thing –Servers were very nice.

    Anyway, 99.9% of the time, I agree with your observations and totally enjoy reading you:) Thanks for your insights!

      Wow! Susan, that’s awful! When did you go? I don’t remember any of that. In fact, I don’t remember any music being played. My glass of wine, I think, was about 12 euros which is reasonable considering the setting. Marina’s spritz was about that, too. We have not been there in two years, though. If you have gone since then, I’ll take your email as a warning. Thanks.

        It was just last September –so it’s been about a year. I’ve been back to Rome many times since, but won’t go there again— But I’ll take all your other recommendations;) Always great –especially the pizzerias. Thanks again for all your “hard work” for us:)!!!
