Another day in Rome.  Thought we would take it easy today, but there is too much to catch the eye, one thing leads to another and you end up walking the city.  No problem though.  We are tired and hot, but enjoying the sites.   Today we made it to the Spanish Steps, river, and more obelisks than we can count (some “acquired” directly from Egypt as conqueror’s trophys).
More good food – the thinnest pizza I’ve ever had (very good), Gnocchi, ravioli, flatbread and bruschetta.   And as always Gelato and drinks along the way.  How about G&T’s in front of the Pantheon?  We had to go back there as the main portion was closed last night.  The dome is amazing.  It’s hard to believe we are looking at structures built and used during the Roman Empire.
One more day here, then on to Pisa.  Beth is busy decoding the train system …

A beautiful city to walk around.  Many small apartments  everywhere.

And a cool drink to refresh ourselves.  There's the Vespa again!

Thanks to you both for keeping us posted (and photo'd)..... and thank goodness the mystery of the Vespa is solved. Good thing - I was going to ask for a photo of one of you riding it! Guess that will be a job for p-diff to figure out.

Beth, your camera is great (as is your eye)! Any of these with the IP4?

Amo i cavalli cappelli'! So cavalier :-)

Ciao! - Lynn

We've enjoyed Rome, but are ready to move on. Glad all is ok on the home front. We saw a pet store today, but weren't sure Wendy would know the difference from an Italian bone ...

All our love...
