Rome, Italy
W.C. Rutchi met us at our hotel and took us to Vatican City so that we could sight see.  WE looked all through this and he and his wife met us for lunch.  We had a good Italian dinner.  After lunch he drove us around Rome, and to the Catacombs.  Later Mr. and Mrs. Starmer met us at the hotel and took us to the airport.  Alan talked with Mrs. Starmer all the way to the airport about the Catholic religion.  We got on our plane to ride all night to Africa.  The plane was very small and very crowded and I was not able to sleep any.  Ken and Alan slept very well though.

We have come full circle as of today’s post.  I started this journey 1 year ago today, and like Morgan Freeman in this clip from “Shawshank Redemption” I did not know where it would lead.  The postings will not occur daily as they did before but I am fairly sure this is not the end.  I will be taking a two week hiatus before embarking on the next leg of this journey.  Touch base with the page then and let’s travel the way together!

Thanks again for reading my thoughts and sharing your kind comments!
