Ilka and I spent last weekend in Rome without the children – the first time Ilka has spent a night away from Carla since she was born. I flew out on Thursday to work at a screening, and Ilka came out on Friday. Here’s a few pictures from our day sightseeing on Saturday:

Rome is beautiful, but it is also very expensive if you’re not careful – I accidentally ended up paying 5 euros for a cappucino in one cafe. That’s worse than central London prices. By comparison, the taxis seemed very good value and really efficient – you order one at your hotel reception, it turns up three or four minutes later. The food was generally pretty good too, but you wouldn’t expect anything less in Italy. Although it might not look it in the pictures, the weather was good up until we left on Sunday.
