When in Rome

One day left on the world tour. 

The gypsies took the train back to Zurich so that girlfriend could catch the return flight back home on Monday (she starts school this week).  Junior and his friend then hopped the train down to Rome where they've been exploring the old city.  The Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Vatican, St Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel - you know all the touristy spots.  A lot of ground to cover in two days and they were duly impressed.  

Somehow, we never made it down into Italy when we were over in Germany.  We never had the time or opportunity or inclination to make that road trip.  We are glad they made the trek over there to see some of history up close & personal.  He is slated to catch a return flight tomorrow back home to the land of no rain and 100+ degree temps. 

Oh, and I probably should note that it is the 24th anniversary of the arrival of our little tax deduction/financial investment.   

Happy Birthday, Explorer!
Let them eat cake

Sounds like a great trip! Good for your boy for taking advantage of youth and freedom and going off exploring! He'll never regret it.

And Happy Birthday to Junior!
