Today we went to the Vatican (figuring if we were going to see it, better to do so before the crowds start assembling to mourn the pope), and are now in downtown Rome (near Trevi fountain), planning to explore a bit and maybe get to the Colosseum. We're having a lovely time. I just can't get over actually being here. I love just looking at the buildings... the ancient architecture with all the very modern trappings. It's quite striking. So much to see. It would take a lifetime to see it all.
Having a great time, wish you were here and all that. ;)
