From my journal: “Hard to believe it is our last day. We thought to go to Vatican City, but we saw the lines and decided, another trip. . . and back to Castel Sant’ Angelo, or the Roman Emperor Hadrian’s Mausoleum we went.”
From my journal: “We wandered across the Tiber and back into our stomping grounds from our first days. We had everything packed to ship this AM! Lunch on Campo Flori, simple red pizza and antipasta, not nearly as good as Antico Forna. . . then wandered more, though I HAD to pull Mik back to Novelli. He had not seen it. He bought me a shiny copper body Lamy pen. If only someone made a metallic copper ink that was waterproof!”
“We stocked up on more goodies for the night and trip home — then at the last minute went out for our dinner!”
“Memory is more indelible than ink.”
Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
Because it is our last day, I am posting the inside of the front and back of my journal. In the front are things which helped me face what I was going through, personally. I also took notes of foreign phrases as we traveled. FRONT:
When we started the back was full of notes. Now only the things that we didn’t do are in there, for another trip.
