Unique New York

It is pouring rain and pounding thunder and there are two girls doing a well choreographed rain-dance on the Barnard lawn.

I missed it here.

Paris, Je t'----

Springtime in Paris ... blah, blah, blah.

It's been beautiful here and some how I've been completely turned-off by taking pictures and/or site-seeing. Just sit and drink and eat. Things could be much, much, much worse.

My French is basically all gone and what remains is a mangled mess but I manage by the good graces of Cyrena and her various American-loving French friends. I had no idea such things existed.

Today I will go to the Montparnasse Cemetery and take pictures; The weather is appropriately grey and blustery.

A tout a l'heure.

Berlin is the capital city and one of sixteen states of Germany

Mistaking straight for gay and gay for straight
Battle wounds (elbow vs. pavement)
Lost-and-found keys

Bright-blue leotard
Bust of Nefertiti
Babbling Aristophanes
Beautiful weather

So Rome went like this ...

Private room at Laterno House

Piazza Noava, the Pantheon, Trivi fountain (three coins = return, fall in love, get married?), Capuchini Crypts (bone mosaics!), Spanish steps (beer at sunset), dinner in the Jewish Ghetto, American Bars

Ostia Antica (picnic in the ruins), Thunder storm, home cooked meal, whiskey and peach tea

The zoo!, sore feet, quiet night, EARTHQUAKE

Forum and Palantine hill (hot, croweded, no audio-guide, ancient), Basillica of San Giovanni, best Pizza, Tree folk

Leonardo Express to the airport

Not jam-packed but appropriately Roman I think.
