Programming Note of Awesomeness

Guess who speaks fluent French and is flying to Rome today? THIS MOI! Yes, I am heading back to the motherland for the second year in a row. My aim for this trip is to walk the ancient city. I mean, like, all of it. I have exactly two site visits booked, but otherwise the week will be dedicated to exploring the greatest open-air museum in the world without schedule or expectation. I will walk the pomerium, tracking every extant snippet of the ancient walls and gates I can find. I will criss-cross the center. I will go back and forth over the Tiber whenever the spirit moves me.

If all goes well, there will be some posts that refer back to earlier stories I’ve written. If not, then you’ll receive the full benefit of my dubious pictorial skills documenting my adventures in the Capital of the World. Rest assured, I will relay all your best wishes to the cats.

I am So So envious. One of my favorite places in the world. When I was there a few years ago, we stayed at a quaint little hotel and our room overlooked the Tiber. Enjoy! Enjoy!

If you haven’t been there previously I recommend the Museum of Roman Culture. It is a hidden gem.

There seems to be a problem with the mail, as I haven’t received my complimentary “since it’s on my bucket list” ticket to accompany you on this trip.

I so envy you – have a blast!

Don’t really understand all this Rome hype, after all, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Have nice trip!
