Yes, I have arrived in Rome, the picture above being proof!
This is a quick note to say that I am alive and well, and to satisfy those who keep asking for a blog update! ;-)
I have been here a few days, but my internet connection varies, and is offline when I am usually online (wifi only available 9am-9pm, roughly, sometimes the server sleeps in, sometimes it is up late, but regardless it's not a steady thing).
So far I have had a drink overlooking the 2nd floor of the Collosseum, explored the Ghetto, visited the site where Julius Caesar met his maker, and visited the cat sanctuary! Otherwise I have been sleeping (like the 14 hours I slept upon my arrival!), getting to know my neighborhood, eating gelato and figuring out transit intricacies. Plus doing some contract work.... And trying to stay out of the heat
