Gelateria Blue Ice...

DAMN YOU!!!!

What do you put in your gelati that makes me crave it every single day between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m.?

Of course, you're located in a place that requires us to walk by you every time we walk back to our hotel for our afternoon nap. Walk by? HA! How can we pass you up when you offer so many wonderful flavors served up by the young, cheery, Albanian woman who works there - smiling, singing along to Shakira's Illegal (which always seems to be playing on the radio every time we come in), wanting to "practice the English" with us...while she feeds my growing addiction. How many flavors are there? I want to...no, need to...try them all. AND, it seems like each day I order the next larger sized container.

It's the 24th of December, and I'm beginning to dread leaving Rome on the 26th. No...not because I'll be leaving Rome, but because I'll be leaving the frosty, thick, and creamy manna from heaven that I have come to love. Hmmm....we'll have to leave for the airport at 9:30 a.m., and Blue Ice also opens at 9:30 a.m. Will I be able to delay the driver for five minutes so that I can run over for one last taste? Perhaps it's best if I just resign myself to having my last taste tomorrow afternoon - Christmas Day.

What? CLOSED????


Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Stuff looks pretty good. I'm pretty curious to know how that stuff compares to the stuff we have on our block. Really I'd be curious to know the taste differences. The stuff here is so pricey though!

We've been to Blue Ice! Yum! The last time we were in Rome our concierge recommended it as the best gelato in Rome, so you picked a winner. Unfortunately, Venice was lacking in the gelato department.

Peach - I tried e-mailing you twice, and it wouldn't go through. Did you write your e-mail correctly? It looks like you might have spelled something incorrectly.
