On our way down to Rome for our last day prior to flying to Paris and on to Washington, D.C. we stopped in Assisi to visit the Bascilica of San Francesco where St. Francis of Assisi is buried. We couldn’t take photos inside the church but it was awesome. He is my favorite saint and we have statute of him as a fountain on our patio in Florida. He loved animals and is the patron saint of animals.
We also stopped and visited the Temple of Minerva which is now the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. It was also at one time a Temple to Appolo.
Later in Rome at the Airport Hilton we watched the Belgian v. USA WC game. I like both teams and wore my Red Devils shorts and USA shirt in support.
This is Frederick and I am now in Washington, D.C. finally. We had to stop in Boston on our way here because of very bad weather and lightning. Today we take a tour of the Capitol and maybe some time at the Air and Space Museum. Tomorrow we have a special dinner and fireworks watching from our hotel, the Hay Adams, across from the White House.
Glad to be back in the U.S.A.
