Today was filled with sunshine; it had to be at least seventy degrees outside. The parks were full of Romans enjoying the day off and a rare day of sunshine. I do think that Spring has arrived for Easter week. We had a long day today, the pedometer said we did 7.26 miles! We started about 10:30 am on the Metro heading towards the Museum of Villa Torlonia.
Back on the tram we continued for three stops to the Buenos Aires Stop; jumped off and decided to take a look at the church rummage sale that was going on in their parking lot. One unusual item was a table full of white shirts from America? Also they had a huge selection of fur coats. Fun to look but nothing special enough to carry home.
Back on the tram but just to the Metro Station where we rode back to Termini, switched to A Metro and got off again at Lepanto Station. We walked from there to Ponte Cavour to find what I think is the smallest museum in all of Rome. It's a museum about purgatory. We found it but the doors were locked. Finally on our bus #49 from Cavour Plaza we headed home about four o'clock.
Back on the bus with many others we stood in the aisle all the way back to the apartment arriving home just before eight o'clock.
We enjoyed our dessert of an apple, wine and chocolate along with a game of Hand and Foot cards. This is the third time that I have typed this journal tonight...I lost the first two when I hit the wrong keys just as they were about finished. Hope you've enjoyed the story.
