Here I am about to land in the Toronto airport, notice how bright-eyed and bushy-tailed I look!
And about to land in Rome, notice the squinty, baggy eyes. . . that's what a lot of flying does to you, and my day wasn't even half over yet!
This is what I did while worrying everyone at home. . .
Ate gelatto in the Campo. . .
Took pictures with me in them. . .
and tried not to fall asleep in public, although I definitely dozzed off in the Rome Center. . .
I promised some pictures of the Rome Center building (Palazzo Pio) and my apartment, so here they are!
The Palazzo Pio or Rome Center building. Our door is the imposing one in the middle with all the graffitti on it. I have to say, Rome is much more graffitti-covered, and generally dirtier than I had expected. . . but it's still lovely and pictureseque. . .
This is the stairwell in the building, thank goodness there is also an elevator (which is more than I can say for our apartment). . .
Later I'll post about the Pantheon. I'm also planning on going to Vatican City this weekend (or sooner, if I can), so there'll be pics of that someday as well. We also have lots of tours planned, so I'm sure I'll learn lots and get to see a lot as well, which I will, of course, share with you!
