Friday, October 22nd

Last day of training for Jeff till about one and then we are heading on the Eurostar to Rome…we should get there about 6:00 p.m. Out the window we are enjoying the scenic countryside…vineyards, chateau’s, villas and small villages.

We arrived in Rome at 6:00 p.m. we got off right at the Coliseum and it was just getting dark and that made some pretty pictures…then off to find our Hotel Morgana we were all on the same floor one couple had like a beautiful suite with two balconies overlooking a park.  We stopped and had dinner at side restaurant called Trupini’s…more pasta.  We headed off to see some of the sights at night.  We hit the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountains, Pantheon, and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier which is the newest of all the ruins.  We ended up back at the hotel about one in the morning.

An early start to the day we hooked up with a tour at the Coliseum which was incredible and then took another tour at Vatican City which included the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel and ended at St. Peter’s Basilica.  After all of the picture taking I doubt if we can remember all of what we say.  On the way back we stopped and got the boy tee-shirts at the Hard Rock Café and had a very late lunch.

We are now on the train heading back to Milan.  Rome has some amazing things but, a lot more people than Milan.  We will leave for home in the morning. We found out today that President Monson is here for the ground breaking of Italy, Rome Temple…it is about 30 to 40 miles from where we are at. This has been an amazing journey we have been on.
