Next stop: Italy!

We made our arrival into the Italian town of Bari. Unfortunately the ferry and train aren't timed very well so we had a few hours to kill, but soon, we were on the train! Here, Becca gets productive, and the next picture is out the train window. On the train, we met some very helpful Canadian tourists who gave us the "lowdown" of what to see and do in Rome. Soon we arrive in Rome. Happily, the train station is also the subway station (these people are geniuses!) and our next host gave very precise directions. From the train, we take a subway, then walk a few blocks to our hotel. A nice view out our window, and we have our first, wonderful Italian meal in a cute little unnamed "mom & pop" place-full of Italians (always a good sign). Risotto and wine for me, and Rebecca had a pizza (she was disappointed to find that "Napoli" means "with anchovies"!). Other than the anchovies, it was the first of many delicious Italian meals!
