Hello from Rome. I am writing from an apartment I rented in the Monti quarter of Rome with the Colosseum just a few blocks south of the front door. Today is my last day of a six day visit and I am ready to return to Alexandria tomorrow. Don’t get me wrong, I have had a fabulous time and really enjoyed Rome and look forward to my next visit. I guess part of the reason I love to travel is that at the end of a journey, I am reminded of how fortunate I am to live in Alexandria, Minnesota. It is a wonderful place to call home.
