From the Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness) of Assisi to frantic Rome. What a contrast! We witnessed our first robbery at the Pantheon today, complete with motorcycle chase, so we know what we are up for during our ten days here.
The fighter jets and crime aside--you know I love Rome. As we strolled through the forum this morning, enjoying the ruins and fall colours, we were once again impressed by the thought of all who have passed there before us. The triumphal marches, the Caesars, the apostle Paul--it stirs the imagination.
I found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble ~Augustus
You are Always in my Prayers. Love Mom.
P.S. Rome still has its Gelato, but not for long!
