Hi everyone,
We made it!  I had vertigo from being on so many planes and landing and taking off, but the best thing was then I got to experience Rome.  Just a short time so don't freak out everyone, but when we were at the Termini, aka train stain, in rome looking for bus N. 741 which was really N. 714 and trying to ask anyone who knew english.  Then encountering the big mean bus driver who said I will help you sit up by me, but dropped us 8 blocks from our stop and 5 people later (in which we asked if they knew where we were, we found our place.  Now take note that the box you see Mick and I is the ELEVATOR to our room!!  I am terribly afraid of elevators and now I must sit in a box that you operate yourself and hope for the best, because there is not even a phone!  Anyway, starving and somewhere around 5:00 which was really our 12:00 am we went off in search of a place to eat and walked toward the Coloseum as instructed.  Half way there I fell, Mick was ahead of me and then all of a sudden my water bottle was ahead of him and I was on the grounjd. Yup, scraped knee and bruised ego, but the worse was there was people that saw me fall and then saw Mick hold me as I cried.  I wished for this for 25 years and now I just want to come home!!  But after turning around and going back to the B&B we then set out again.  The hunger and thirst will make sane people go crazy.  We found a little pizzeria which you will see the menu of and by the way tried charging us 8 eruos more, which I had to call him out on.  All he could do was say oh I see Madame.  Anyway, we had a liter of Chianti for 4 Eurro and a 4 cheese pizza, sat outside and finally laughed.  Anyway, I am already nervous about the trips on the train because it really looked scary today while we were there, but must take it in stride.  Mick is snoring and I am going to bed!  Love to you all more of the Mick and Lisa adventure of a lifetime tomorrow as we head out to see more of Rome!
