June 12, 2006
Rome, Italy
The last 2 days we have taken a train from The Hague to Charleroi, Belgium and then a flight to Rome. Yesterday we toured St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican. Then to Piazza Navonna for VERY expensive coffee( can you say $ 6.00 per cup!?) and a walk around the city. Watch out! As enlightened as the Netherland is about pedestrian right of way, Rome is the exact opposite. Run, don' t walk across the street!
Our hotel is very nice although extremely expensive as is everything in Rome. Today we are off to the Old city and to Piazzi Popola ( plaza of the people) then of course a tour of Stadio Olympico, to see where AS Roma plays soccer.
More soon from the Griswolds.
Over and out...Clark
