The Italian Job - Arrival

ROME--It takes more than a little while to get here, but here we are. Frankly, I've probably slept six out of the last 36 hours and yesterday and today have effectively blended into one.

Despite a plane change in Newark, we got on without any difficulty and arrived in Rome only 20 minutes later than scheduled.

After a breathtakingly expensive cab ride from the airport to our hotel, we checked in and went out to see the sights.

The first was the Spanish Steps:

Later, after much walking around and a much needed nap, we made our way to the Trevi Fountain.

And now we're relaxing before going for some dinner. I have plans for a six mile run around Rome in the morning and as long as it's not to heavy, I'm going to bring along the camera for some pictures along the route. Until then...Buneo Sera!
