I didn't want to spend much time staring at the TV in my room - after all, I could do that at home. But here are a few things I noticed:
Watching CNN's broadcast from London, I realized that British people are really pasty (can you say, "Whiter Shade of Pale"?). Get some sun, people!
It really is vastly amusing to watch dubbed American shows and movies. I saw bits of "Two and a Half Men," "The Flintstones," "Everybody Loves Raymond" and some old John Wayne movie. To my great sorrow, I saw only the end credits of a "Law & Order" episode.
It was much more interesting to watch the show outside my window, where I could see and hear a performance of "Havah Nagilah" by a boatload of musicians under the Ponte Vecchio.
