It is located in the new part of town above a rosticerria that we love. I can't imagine the smells wafting up in the afternoon.
The name of the place is Inn Forma….ok…
So Mauro, the sweet owner, puts me on a treadmill, I get to 5 and say "basta." I think, wow, I'm doing great at this speed. It hardly feels like 5 miles per hour….I look down, oh about those kilometers…I was doing about 3.0 now wonder it was so easy!
The Stoic One of course was the star. He was working through the weights and machines like Mr. Universe. I was working with a rubber thing to improve my ankle strength and somehow I broke it. Don't ask me how. The Italian dude next to me almost choked laughing as the rubber handle went flying across the room. Sigh..
So this gold machine was the hot ticket. This is the third woman that came in, got zipped into some foam rubber skirt, then got strapped in. Since Mauro's explanation of this machine was all in Italian, bear with me, you pick: it was either a machine that would allow you to climb mountains at higher altitude, allow you to swim under water for a long time, or eliminate cellulite. I have a sneaking suspicion it was number 3. Note the clock. We started at 9;00, at 10:10 we were still there! Hello, 10 minutes past my expiration date. The Stoic One was thrilled.
Luca in the mean time, has taken to rearranging slippers while we are gone. This is his latest artistic arrangement.
Do you think Italy is wearing off on him? Note our new carpet.
