Our first stop on our recent trip was to sunny Rome...and let me tell you...the sun was shining in overdrive!!! Supposedly it was around 33 degrees centigrade which would put it at 91 degrees Farenheit...I swear it was closer to 100, with about 90% humidity... But hey! We're in Rome!!!
Anyone for a swim???
Our first day we walked along the Fiume Tevere and around the Castel Sant' Angelo, both near our hotel, the Atlante Star.
Isn't she beautiful?
A little side spot that looked like a cool spot to sit and chat with the neighbors...
Probably the best mode of transportation in Rome...
Just for you Wayne!!! In England they put boots around the wheel of a car for parking too long...in Rome, they'll tow ya!!!
I think Luigi may qualify as my Stranger #1...he was our waiter in our favorite restaurant in Rome, the Varona. Very close to our hotel, we walked here our first night. We were hot, tired and hungry! Luigi took care of us..he brought out this, that and the other, all delectable! He told us that he's been a waiter for a long time, and that for awhile he was in the States, also working as a waiter. He was delightful and made our dinner that much more enjoyable!!!
I believe this is the Roman version of the Mary Kay car!!!
I think you need one Doryce!!!
It was so hot, even the cement lion was shvitzing...
The Miller family...our traveling companions, extraordinaire!!!
