"You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should." -- Max Ehrmann

350--Italy: There's No Place Like Rome
@ CherieSpotting     Apr 28 2006 - 09:25 PST
Cherie writes: The streets of Rome are full of surprises. You never know how the day will end.

Perhaps you’ll see a transvestite-nun crying on the shoulder of a senior citizen. Maybe you’ll bump into a Papal-guard that looks like a clown? Perhaps you’ll spend the day gazing up in awe at the Sistine Chapel or snap a photo of a statue with an ice-cream that never melts.

You never know if you’ll wind up inside a museum or a hot-air balloon. But one thing is certain, there is no place like Rome.

You can take a hot air balloon ride in Rome, and get an aerial view of the "Eternal City."
