The front of the Duomo [cathedral] in Florence, decorated with many shades of marble.
The Bridge of Angels, statues by Bernini across the Tiber River in Rome.
View of Greek theater from the Acropolis in Athens.
Lion Gate to the ancient city of Mycenae [lions are carved in the triangle over the opening].
I came down with throat crud on the third day, sore throat and coughing, and still have it. Slowed me down some on the excursions. But what a lot of fabulous sites we saw!
Now I am catching up on the mail, etc.
Taking my sore throat to Women's Chorus rehearsal tonight to LISTEN, not sing or breathe on anyone.
All the travel connections went smoothly
Lost a half a pound!!!
