Beverly left at 4am to catch her flight. The rest of us slept a little longer then grabbed breakfast downstairs. Sarah and I wandered around the city some more while Cynthia finished up packing and went out on her own for a little while.
In the taxi ride to the airport, we drove past the Circus Maximus, which was something else we’d meant to go see. We also missed the Mouth of Truth, and while I saw bones and skulls in churches, I didn’t make it to the crypt where the art is made from the monks’ bones. Clearly, we will need to go back to Rome. And I for one, can’t wait. I only hope I’m lucky enough to have such great travel companions as I did this time. Also, maybe by then, those Fendi shoes Sarah and I loved will be on sale 😉
