Today was mostly a travel day. We caught the 10:44 departure for Rome. That was one fast train. I didn’t get an exact speed, but we got up a head of speed between Florence and Rome such that I thought the thing was going to fly. In the last hour of the trip, we had a major failure of Tracey’s Ipod. It just stopped working.

We found the hotel without any problems and immediately got directions to the nearby Apple store. In 5 minutes, the attendant in the store had shown us what the problems was and the day was saved. We have been using the Ipod to listen to recorded books during our travels so a failure there would be a MAJOR problem.

We spent the rest of the day walking around the Coliseum and Roman Forum. We had the best dinner so far at a near by sidewalk cafe (that was much cheaper than any in Venice) before heading back to the hotel for the evening. Tomorrow we plan to visit the Vatican Museum and Saint Peter’s Basilica. St. Peters is the most impressive man-made place that I have laid eyes on. Pictures to follow.
