I love my Crocs
We made it to Rome! Our feet are killing us, but other than that we made it unharmed. No, we didn't walk here, we climbed the dome of the Duomo this morning before leaving Florence (all 463 steps!) and then walked around and saw the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. Tomorrow we head to Pompeii for the day, and I am very excited about that. It was fascinating to see all the ruins of Ancient Rome, and try to imagine how they used to look. Pretty much everything used to be covered in marble, and now none of it is. I'll try to post as many pictures as I can, but it takes a while and I only have 15 minutes (I sweet talked the concierge into giving me 15 minutes for free). Miss you all!
