Bless you for Lex's candle and prayer. The loss is still fresh. Glad you're enjoying you trip.

I hope you are having the time of your life! It occurred to me that not knowing the history of every building you see will allow you to extend your visit, in a way. Just make sure to photograph everything, and then you can do the research once you get home - if there is not a tour guide handy to give you the information on the spot. :)

And ... take a picture of the water all over the bathroom. You know you will want it for later.

I hate seeing all these random spammy comments on good quality blogs like this. It's such a waste.

You mean like the shit you leave, michael?

Anyway... eagerly awaiting stories about Bones vs. the bidet...

I am so glad you arrived safe and sound. I know it's going to be an amazing time. If you pass St. Peter's Bascillica, my Uncle Edward and Aunt Brenda were married there many moons ago. Very cool.
Can't wait to see the photos. Have fun and love to everyone.

I've been to Rome before, so much to see and do, but be alert, Rome can be a dangerous place. A little advice: If you're walking next to a road, walk on the inside right of your husband, and if you're carrying a bag, carry it on your right. I saw two people on mopeds or motorcycles drive by who was on the outside...closest to the road, and use a hook to snag the purse or bag. I saw this happen twice.

Will you be going anywhere else besides Rome?

Stay safe, and have a great time.

I hope you have the time of your life ((all y'all's lives!) in Italy. Having just come from a place with a rich historical legacy, I know how awe-inspiring it is to see those ancient stones... to feel connected.

Apropos of Yabu's comment, you do have to watch out for pickpockets (in Rome, especially). Frequently these are gypsies... not always. When a horde of 'em pile on to a bus with you, be sure they keep their distance.

I hear the food there is pretty tasty. Except maybe in Venice.

We'll be looking for full debriefs at regular intervals. Have fun and be safe!

I teared up at your lighting a candle for Lex - thank you! Such a beautiful thought!

Please take lots of pictures, so you can share them with us.

Be safe, have fun, remember to put your feet up and relax for a bit every day...
