Final leg..now in Roma
Our tour took us from Florence to Rome today with a mid-day stop in Orvietto. What a lovely little town - quiet and fascinating. It was hard not to take a picture of EveryThing. Lunch included wine tasting but as our guide said...wine tasting means wine drinking. "this is not Napa". The wine drinkers had a good meal to balance the bottles with and via santo at the end with biscotti.
I had never seen the Appenines before and the 'hills' truly are mountains. We drifted in and out of cloud all morning but the afternoon was a perfect fall day, crystal clear and sunny.
Tonight in Rome the moon looks nearly full and the planets sparkled in the sky. I had my first and I hope last meltdown...too much sensory overload and I get frazzled to tears. A sit down, a bottle of aqua minerale frizzante and my timeout got me back on track.
We're making it a relatively early night tonight as tomorrow is an a.m. Vatican tour. Hello Pope.
ciao my friends..
