It is 10:00 PM at night and Nalynn is re-packing the suitcase to get us down to the 50 Lb limit for our checked bag. Our good friends, Nan and John had us over to their house for dinner tonight , which was greatly appreciated due to the fact that we were down to one pint of questionable cherry tomatoes in the refrigerator. W are excited for this vacation. The flight leaves tomorrow morning for JFK and we will connect there to arrive in Rome at 7:35 AM Saturday. We both wish you could come along with us, but in the meantime please join us virtually through this travel blog. We will do our best to update this as often as possible.
