Arrival in Rome

Wow – I’m beat! We arrived at the hotel about an hour ago… my room wasn’t ready so I had a coffee and familiarized myself with a map of Rome for a while in the lobby. The hotel is beautiful. It’s the Westin Excelsior.

The city is beautiful too – lots of old buildings, lots of green. I can’t wait to explore a little and start taking photos!

Here are a few quick pics I took on my iphone on arrival. I wish I could have taken some from the car on the way to the hotel but we were moving too quickly and there was too much to look at.


Landing in Rome… then bus ride to terminal.


Wow… Google maps and GPS works on my iphone here just like it does at home. Fantastic!
