All about Rome...

Got to Rome around noontime on Saturday, the weather was cool and sometimes damp (showers).  It was good walking weather actually and that is what I did.  As the sun was going down, the sky with the clouds (that occasionally rained on me) made for some good shots:



The weather wasn't horrible or anything, very nice actually.  The sun would come out and then hide for a while and every now and again a very small shower would happen.  When the sun did come out, it was very nice - a bit warmer (in the mid 60's F, about 16-18C).  Made for nice shots here and there:


 Now, tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and 70F (20C), so hopefully lots more shots like this:


Are part of the future. Plan on hitting many of the sites starting in the morning and throughout the day. It has been about 5 years since I was last in Rome and way back then, I was not nearly as good a "tourist". I have a plan for what I want to see tomorrow and a camera in hand. Should be good.

Then it is back to work and then back to home.

Welcome in Italy!

Congratulations for the first snapshot (on the bridge leading to Castel Sant'Angelo and then Vatican City if I'm not mistaken), it looks like a postcard ...
