Well we made it. Flight was long, miserable, noisy, crowded. Everything you would want in a 16 hour trip. But we arrived!!!! With very little sleep and Jean having developed Jerry's cold with a vengeance. Oh well, a little cold isn't going to slow us down.

Took the Leonardo Express from the Rome International Airport, about 25 miles, into Termini Station. Riding the train was fun. My new suitcase proved it had great wheels when it kept escaping from its spot on the train as it stopped and turned.
Made the walk to our hotel from the train station , about 6 blocks. Checked in , went out for a Roma pass and then crashed. I know all the experts say don't sleep, but really...we are OLD and w needed to sleep. We left the hotel for a little walk. Down Via Cavour to the Colleseum. wow that never gets old...( a little ancient humor there.) We are pooped, so we are calling it an early night. See you tomorrow! Ciao!
