Roamin' Rome

Pantheon Dome
Spent yesterday wandering through Rome, the back streets and the famous sights.  Having wonderful time, wish you were here!

Vatican, in the heat
One of the popes built a wide ceremonial road to lead to the Vatican from the Tiber, and those 4 or 5 blocks are always blazing hot.  Lots of people at the Vatican -- so many that I opted out of the long line just to get into the church.  Make note: visit in the winter next time...

Madonna in an arch
She was surrounded by a blue sky with stars -- in an archway on the road to the Vatican.

Trevi Fountain at night
Threw my coin in...will be coming back to Rome.

Stucco wall in Rome
These wall photos are my newest passion -- love the texture, the color, the weird stuff stuck in them over the passage of time.

I leave tomorrow morning for the Great Grey East.  One more gelato tonite before I go. Ciao.
