once on our own and once with Tom and Mary Kay -- but it is always an adventure to roam through this fantastic ghost town, exploring new areas and making new discoveries. Here are a few pictures from this trip, plus some random scenes back in Rome.

Just for fun, I set the camera on the ledge of the bus window and let it run for three stops through our neighborhood. If nothing else, it will give you a glimpse of what our "Prati" neighborhood looks like. The second two videos were shot on the street where my classroom building is. Also, it might give you just the tiniest, tiniest hint of the kind of chaotic traffic and anarchic parking situation that Susie had to deal with when driving our rented car. Finally, I wonder if it is a coincidence that two of the three clips end just outside a gelateria?
Today (Tuesday, May 10), we all went down to the historic city center. After a trip to San Clemente and its subterranean archeological wonders, we walked down the avenue running past the Forum. We enjoyed a great lunch at a shady outdoor cafe, then took a tour of Trajan's Forum and Marketplace. Will & Maya then headed over to the Campodoglio to check out the collections and the view.
As I write this, Susie is cooking her famous puerco asado for dinner. The happiest couple in Rome will be home soon. All in all, it was A Very Good Day in Rome.
