roaming roma * part one

pantheon in color and massiveness

amazing how this was even constructed!
and still standing

the forum

a lil' different than ceasar's palace forum
in vegas
no statures moved here
well none that were ceasar-ish
relief society arms and the coliseum

cinque terre

random fact: in this national park there is protection for homeless cats...
see the lil cat tent and happy sleeping cat
we saw a cat shirt in one town
and thought it was just for cat people
but little did we know that we'd happen upon cats on the 6 mile trail
between the towns.
when i saw this i knew
my aunt deb & mike would be so proudi'm taking you backwards through cinque terre
this was our celebration swim after our day long hike

what a spread!

the beginning of the day in riomaggiore

oh italy!

more explanation another day
i'm trying to keep up
with having a life
and my mother's needs to see my pictures
stories to follow...
