alitaliaI finished the last of my introductory Italian today.  I can speak (parlo) a little (un po) in Italian (Italiano).  Since my lessons are oral and Italian has very complicated spelling and pronunciation rules, I have no idea how to write it.   Somehow arreviderche looks wrong but I think you will know what I mean.  Tomorrow we are off bright and early for an 8 hour layover in LA and overnight to Rome.  I had plans to do a couple of posts this week but my computer crashed with my drafts creating chaos in my office.  This will have to do.

I’ve been nervous as a cat the past few days worrying about what I will have forgotten and only discover when we get to Rome.  You would think I would be more relaxed since I have been gone for a month earlier this year and survived.  Logic doesn’t help.

I’d tell you that Bob and Justin will pick up the slack while I’m away but you probably wouldn’t believe me.  I haven’t been good at posting while abroad even though the internet makes it easy.  I’m going to give it a try this time.  Probably mostly pictures but there is bound to be something crazy going on in Rome even if it is only the tourists.

Now it’s time to pack.

  1. I dont have any other words to say for Ralph but take care and enjoy your trip. I hope you will have the best experience and the best memories to cherish in Rome.

  2. Thanks David. I’ll do my best.

  3. Hi Ralph, when in Rome, take as many pictures as you can! Those streets are more than 2000 years old and they have got a really special atmosphere, you’re going to experience it;) arrivederci :))
