The plan for the last day in Rome was simple: 9am breakfast; last minute shopping; lunch and awards; a walk in the park; back on the bus and home.

I especially enjoyed seeing the Belvedere Torso, which apparently was an inspiration for Michelangelo, particularly his "Last Judgment" which we saw later.

The temperature today was in the high 90s (maybe even 100?) and everyone was competing for the little shade there was. We found a few skimpy trees with a low brass railing around them and sat on that railing while we ate. The dirt below was as dry as dust and any of the water or Powerade bottles we left there ...
