Rome Spring 2008
Continuing our twice per year trips to Rome and Italy we went this year from mid March to mid April. We did make two side trips out of Rome - a five-day trip to Barcelona Spain ( Barcelona ) and a bike trip along the Mediterranean coast to Sperlonga and Gaeta.

Photo: The day we arrived in Rome there was a garbage strike. It only lasted a few days. These are the trash bins around the corner from our apartment and the ones we use. The trash strike in Naples which started in November is still going on.
Photo: We were very sad to see that our friends Carla and Enrico have had to shut their shirt and tie shop on Via XX Septembre just around the corner from our apartment. 'Sevendita Totale' is everything is on sale.
