What does a geek do when in Rome for the weekend? He visits the Anfiteatrum Flavium and checks out the Serif typefaces.
He also scores an Escher exhibition at Musei Capitolini that he stumbles upon quite by accident.
He does not access his e-mails though. Then, when he comes back on Monday night, there are about 800 of them infesting the inbox.
Sometime thereafter, he rediscovers the fundamentals of tenses in the English language and resumes making sense (after a fashion).
