Amy here again – Okay yesterday I made you jealous with my dinner description. Today you can feel sorry for me. The elevator in our hotel has been broken for two days. We are on the fourth floor and each floor has 20 steps. You do the math! Plus there are a dozen steps just to get from the street to the lobby. By the time we get to our room I collapse gasping onto the bed. Let’s face it – I ain’t no spring chicken!! The double dilemma – if they get it fixed do we dare to take it?? I don’t want to be the one inside if it fails again!! Hmmm.
So to give ourselves a break we treated ourselves to a taxi ride to the Colosseum this morning. Then we spent hours hiking all around the ruins and the Roman Forum as well. We also walked all the way back to the hotel. So we just had to fortify ourselves with a yummy gelato before braving the steps to our room. I am currently resting my poor old legs while Sarah has gone to check out a pair of red heels she saw in a shop window. Ah to be young!
