Excerpt from Message

Tues. – 6/29 Dear Pat, Larry et al – Just returned to Rome from Florence, which is fabulous! While there, tool a 1-day side trip to Pisa. That tower really leans! It’s especially no cable when climbing the stairs – you slip from one side of the step to the other. We went to the very top where you see the railing – beautiful view – you can see the Mediterranean. It has been very warm – 97 in Rome for several days – and Florence even worse! Decided to skip our stay in Paris – too many poor people. Leaving for Dublin tomorrow – love – Kathleen
