wait, I guess Rome is not Oz.
Good--no flying monkeys.
But Jason and I are off to Rome today, and two days in Florence as well. We managed to get tickets for a visit to the excavations under St. Peter's Basilica (tomb of St. Peter?)--yay for the off season! We also plan to visit, oh, every major artwork and most major ancient sites and probably a bunch of churches. And there may or may not be a visit to see the Pope. One just never knows, does one?
We also plan to eat a lot of pasta, risotto, and gelato, and chocolate at the chocolate festival in Florence, and to drink some wine and lots of cappuccino too.
And then we'll be back...one week from today. Insha'allah.
Happy last week of January!
