    Kevin asked me to repost these here so those of us going on the May Viva Italia trip can get excited. Like we need an excuse.

    These are from Part 1 of our Adventure.....Rome:

    The Trevi Fountain

    On our way to the Pantheon from the Trevi Fountain we walked through a small mall. This Christmas decoration seemed to catch everyone's eye.

    Our 'major' purchase this trip - a vase in Orvieto. It stands about 3 feet tall and is gorgeous!!!

    A wonderful cafe we found right next to the Florence leather market. I want to live here!!! It was called Trattoria San Lorenzo.

    I never noticed the phone - I was mesmerized by the giant proscuitto!!!!

    I also never noticed the stuff for sale on the shelves to the right.

    Who wants to join us for lunch there?

    All, I have some bad news James and I have to cancel our trip to Italy! Things at my work will be changing right at the time I would be leaving to my trip and I can't leave.
