Left Country Side for the Big City

Well, I left Tuscany yesterday for Rome. It's a 2 hour bus ride.I am sad and excited at the same time. It's a huge change -- no more rolling hills, olive groves and cypress lined roadways and villas. I spent the first day of my 2 1/2 weeks walking around, getting an over view of the city. I can't wait to go in and explore the many historic places. It's hard not to think of La Dolce Vita when I was at the Trevi Fountain. I'm hoping to catch La Traviatta playing near the Spanish Steps.

So much to see.
