Greetings from bella Italia! We had hoped to update more often but the days have just flown by! Rome was wonderful and sight packed to say the least! We arrived to our Rome hotel, La Casa di Amy, ready for a quick 30 minute "powernap" which ended up being about 3 hours of well deserved sleep. Here's a shot of the room, and that lump in the bed is me.

After a bit of sleep we've been out and about seeing all the wonders of Rome: The Colisuem, the Forum, the Pantheon, and the Vatican. They were all amazing. We've seen a lot and walked A LOT and have the sore feet to prove it. Rome is just beautiful, especially at night. We've eaten tons of food and scarfed down some of the most delicious gelato daily... mmmm.

Interntet time is pricey so, here's a little mini photo tour for your enjoyment. We've just arrived in Radda in Chianti in Tuscany and it is BEAUTIFUL, just beautiful. Taryn, I keep telling Mike how much you would (and will) love it here, it's picturesque. But, more on that later.... we'll be in touch soon.

Love you too, Christine and Michael

    I'm checking the house regularly. The plants are healthy and happy - so far. The fish don’t seem to be as happy as they are when you are home - I think they miss you ;-)
