Excerpt from Message

PAR AVION 15 August Dear Mother Rossi, We just love Rome – the view from the very top of St Peter’s, the Popes’ tombs underneath, finding St. Madelene Sophie among the founders inside (first one on the right as you go in), roaming around the Colosseum and the Forum, pretending we are ancient Romans, and seeing Aida in the ancient Baths of Coracalla. In order to remember all the wonderful things we have done and seen this summer, Pat and I have been taking extensive notes. Our guides have been informative as to history as well as culture. Your loving children, Elaine & Patrice
