Day 1: Tuesday, Arrived in Rome! After traveling from MPLS to Chicago to the Fiumincino airport, then taking the "Leonardo Express" train to the Termini station, we trudged with 6 pieces of luggage (most of which was carrying painting supplies) to our hotel. Yes, exhausting! But we made it and we're in Rome! Paige naturally came down with a nasty head cold the day before we left and is toughing it out, we took a good nap when we finally got checked in. Against her will, I woke her and fed her a Coke and headed to see the Colosseum! I think for a 13 year old the intensity and business of the streets of Rome can be a bit overwhelming the first time, but I love it! She's getting acclimated.
