Captain Ed checked in during his trip with the First Mate to Italy, and in typical fashion he’s such a dedicated worker he couldn’t forget about you all. You can tell from the photo below that he’s consumed with guilt about being over there in Rome on vacation while all of us suckers Hot Air readers are stuck back at home working. And while it’s not the same as being there in person, he wanted to share a few of the sights with you all. This first shot is Ed in front of the Trevi Fountain.

Next up, the happy couple visit the Spanish Steps.

And finally, a quick trip to see the Via Della Quattro Fontane

That’s all for today, but stay tuned and we’ll try to keep you updated on their progress through Italy over the next week.
