My mother asked me to go to Rome with her several years ago. I told her I did not want to go. This past summer I told her we should go. Friday, November 14th, 2008, we left from O'Hare on a direct flight to Rome. We stayed at a convent called Villa Rosa, which is run by about 12 English speaking nuns. My mom is 87 years old and appears with a red coat in several pictures. Notice my mother walking away whenever I stop to take a picture. Thank God for the red coat or I would have lost her in the streets of Rome.
The first several pictures have captions, the rest do not. The first ones are actually scans of post cards.
