It’s Ferragosto, one of the major Italian holidays.
The city has pretty much cleared out except for tourists and people who work with tourists.
Unfortunately, it was so outrageously hot, we sat inside.
We also sat next to rapper/singer Frank Ocean, which was definitely one of my more random celebrity sightings.
It is NOT a holiday in the States. I had to work today and have a conference call tonight (the L.A. time difference can be a killer sometimes).
That said, meeting a good friend for a delicious lunch is a wonderful thing.
Buon Ferragosto a tutti!
