Rome : Part 2

La Pieta is now guarded off because some wacko tried to chisel the nose off of Mary. The Sistine Chapel. It would be best to travel alone. It is a worldwide attraction, I understand. But you will need to find enough air to breathe, let alone a place to stand. But each and every section […]

Rome : Part 1

Straight from the UK in a short three hour Aerlingus flight, much different than the first class seating I’d had from JFK, we’d flown to Rome. Luckily we got there at night and had a chance to relax! I’d had the first good night’s sleep that I’d had in almost 48 hours in the fluffy […]
