Rome, Italy... for starters

It's been a while since I have posted and this will not be much of a post. It appears that I put too many photos in my on-line Rome album because when I try to arrange the photos or add text, the page freezes. I can't even seem to delete the album and start over. So... the photos are there... all out of order, but beautiful nonetheless.

Hmm... Rome. I will have to return! Andria and I explored all the main sites - the Collosseum, the Roman Forum, St. Peter's and the Vatican museum, the Pantheon, Piazzas Navona and Venezia, the Circus Maximus, and the Trevi Fountain. We also stumbled across events like the movement of a piece of art from a museum, the passing of the torch for the 2006 Olympics in Torino, a track meet, and a Silcian folk celebration.

I hope to write more later... but more than likely I will see many of you in the coming month and will not be able to stop talking about my travels. I think you will have had enough by then!

p.s. I had to sneak this photo of the Sistine Chapel! Zoom in... it is fantastic!
