The Ending. Arrivederci, Italia
We bid Dino and the bus farewell when we arrive in Rome. Then the final agenda is posted.
One last cappuccino as we linger over breakfast.
What will we remember? Not what we expected. This is what we'll remember. Near weeping at the beauty of an impromptu acapella youth choir performance as we gazed at Michelangelo's Moses in the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains. Tears of regret that, once home, we will never eat this well again. Laughing so hard we cried at the crazy white elephant souvenir exchange with our tour buddies. Those are three of the many amazing and unforeseen memories we now treasure.
A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles. - Tim Cahill
