It is raining, but we don't mind, and we stride off toward the sites we always like to see. My hair gets plastered against my head, I feel cold, and we look like drowned rats, but I keep refusing to buy an umbrella from agressive street vendors. Finally I succumb and buy an umbrella from a vendor of my choosing.
She can't go too fast, so we walk along at a relaxed pace, seeing along the way the Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, the pantheon, and piazza Navona - where we slip into a restaurant for lunch. By the time we are done eating, it is time to begin our trip back. It's annoying to have only 5 hours in Rome, but it also feels good to renew our acquaintance with the city, perhaps my favorite city in the world.
