A bit of Rome in Pictures

A view into back terrace of our hotel  

The windows to my hotel room are open wide and I'm looking out into a plaza with flowers cascading off of back porches and birds chirping hello.  I'm sitting on my bed thinking about the nap I'll be taking shortly and feeling grateful for a bit of quiet time.  We've been traveling full on since we've been here.  Lack of sleep is catching up so today will be a bit of a down day.  I see a nap in my very near future.

Yesterday we started by visiting a market to pick up provisions for a park picnic.

Here is a view from the park we visited.  I believe this is the highest point in the city.

These fountains can be found all over Rome, from the ancient aqueduct systems.  They still bring you fresh, clean water and it's a great place to fill up your water bottle.

The views on our walk to dinner last night were not shabby.   

Such a beautiful view.

But the best part of the trip so far might be uniting with this fabulous woman :)
