Words regarding the trip are still failing me, which is why you haven’t seen any posts here the last few days. Heck, I’ve begun writing this post three times — and it’s simply a post to promise more posts.
I’ve been back for a few days and am faring pretty well with the jet lag — afternoons have been rough, but I’ve managed to sleep through the night.
I kept a pretty decent journal over the past week, a feeble attempt to just record what we did — emotions, deep thoughts, and ponderings were hard to capture. But the bare bones are down on paper, so over the next few days I’ll hopefully at least share some of our experiences.
Until then, so you don’t have to keep looking at delicious pineapple pasta, here’s one of the first glimpses we had upon arriving in the Eternal City. This view reminded me why we had made the journey.
