So many people today to see the Sisteen Chapel. It was not a pleasurable experience like it was for me last year. We were hearded through like cattle and I was dissappointed. Michelangelo's masterpiece of course was breathtaking and worth the visit. Rudy was in awe, Amy tired and just wanted out. We sat outside in St. Peter's square where I did a quick sketch of the obilisk in front of me...some nuns passing by stopped to admire my work...hahaha...
A taxi ride to piazza navona for lunch at tre scalini while a young boy of about 10 years played his violin and belted out in a most beautiful voice. Rudy was ready to hand over some coins to him but the polizia came by and shooed him away...I wish they'd left him alone.
out strolling, just Rudy and I. I love strolling in Rome...I'm fitting into the italian way very easily...ciao
I am a 52 year old middle age woman (middle because I plan to live to be 100 years old!). I pursue a passionate life and savor every moment I am here. I have been given many gifts of family, love, vocation and talent. I love people, especially the young children with cancer whom I am privledged to care for as a pediatric oncology RN. I balance the difficult work I do with fun things like traveling to far away places, learning new languages ( I speak 4 now), knitting, quilting, reading, and being an outdoor girl: hiking, kayaking and camping. Just sketching and painting my way through the world before me. I hope you enjoy your visit here.
