Unfortunately I'm getting over a cold so I did not go out last night.
Clearly Rome threw down. There were fireworks at the Colosseum, Piazza del Popolo, I think Pz Navona and next door. I'm kidding about next door but it sounded like rockets were being launched right by my building. I was too sick to actually go down the street to see if there were in fact fireworks in the piazza.
I did look at the window and the sky was light up.
Here's a little clip from last year's celebration at the Colosseum.
I am very excited about 2009.
