On Wednesday morning I went out to the airport to pick up Roy and Diane as they arrived from the US. Michael was giving another talk at the University that morning so he couldn’t go with me.
As I said in an earlier post, I think that 6:00 am is the only time that the city of Rome sleeps….well not really sleeps….more like naps!! There were few people on the street and I was amazed to arrive at the Metro platform to see that it was completely empty…..
Roy and Diane arrived looking fresh and ready to see Rome…..
Later in the afternoon we all (Michael included) walked up to Trajan’s forum and enjoyed the views….
We went into the church that is just by Trajan’s Column, expecting it to be yet another huge church. Instead, we found a lovely, small chapel…..
I love to look in the very tops of the Cupolas and see what has been painted there. In this case, there were angels looking down at us…..
We are glad that Roy and Diane have arrived as it has helped to energize us again. It is good to see the city thru their new eyes!!!
