Next day we jumped up and headed for the Coliseum I have  never seen so many tourists in one place in my life . Shoulder to shoulder walking down the streets in 90 degree weather.  Rome exists for tourism everything revolves around tourists . Illegal immigrants every few yards trying to sell you some odd gizmo, a scarf, or a fake pashmina. It was a hoot. Well I did not think it was terribly funny at the time as I was coming down with some kind of nasty cold .

Trip to Rome

George and I went to Europe Sept 2013 , I was excited to go as its been 30 years since I went the last time, back then I was young and did not fully appreciate it. We arrived in Rome mid afternoon and found a taxi which too, us to our B&B. Ok so I was in for a surprise spoiled by American standards of B&B after running my own I was not remotely prepared for this one. In Europe you are not staying in some one’s home like here , they have apartments which they convert into multiple rooms for many guests and you all share a bathroom . Ours was like staying in a hostel, big shock for the princess here….
