In the city so nice that naming it just once seemed somehow inadequate
There was a really amazing view overlooking Central Park from the apartment where we stayed. Fede, little Sofia and I all had bad colds and were jet-addled, one of us had a vicious case of morning sickness, one of us was beginning to sprout teeth, and every last one of us was bone tired from the long trip and almost 6 months of baby boot camp. So holing up in the room with a view along with the Sofia's American grandparents and essentially not going out unless we absolutely had to was as good as could be done under the circumstances. There's a lot to do in New York, and we didn't do any of it. Maybe next time. We were 2/3rds of the way home from Rome to Seattle. We were exhausted.
