A Working Trip to Rome, Italy - 10th September 1999

Nosher's in Italy to take part in a meeting of the EU's DG XIII GALA project - Global Access to Local something or other - which Suffolk County Council is part of, with its Traveline on-line booking system. Nosher nearly misses the meeting on account of deciding to walk, but it's a humid day and further than it looked on the map. After ending up down a street with the smell of tomato plants in the air, it's time for a taxi to the meeting venue. The meeting itself is only a few hours, so there's plenty of time to explore Rome itself.
