My son returned to the Netherlands with me last weekend: after a few days exploring Arnhem and Amsterdam, we shifted south to Rome. He said that he wanted to use his Latin (live and learn) and see the artifacts that he had read about in class.
It's a hot day here, merging into a beautiful evening. We walked over to the Coliseum, and it didn't disappoint either of us. A day of Roman ruins tomorrow, the Vatican on Friday, back on the weekend in time for the quarter-finals?
