Italy day 1 recap

Well , yesterday was a much quieter day than I expected. Although we made it for the Corso Cavour walk and the Pantheon (with pasta allamatriciana at Maccheroni and gelato at the place where the waiters wear epaulets), bu the time we got to Piazza Navona, my sister was beat (and the fountain was closed for repairs, very unfair!). "We" decided to get one more thing in (St. Peter's), but when we missed the stop, she said she was worn out and needed to go back to the hotel and rest. So we called it a day at 5 and didn't make it to the Trevi Fountain or the Spanish Steps - we went home and napped and then decided our evening walk would be to a local restaurant. (I slept hard during the nap so I'd obviously worn myself out a bit too. This cold hasn't entirely let go - now I'm just phlegming a bit but I'm very tired of it all.) On the other hand it was probably good to get in an evening shower as the hot water gave up before I'd finished the rinse cycle and I had to turn it off and give it time to heat up while I scrubbed. Missing from my luggage (my fault): slippers, soft warm pants, scrubby, razor. I should make a permanent packing list so I don't forget anything again. Today we're off to the forum though the weather looks unpromising (BBC lies with its sun: it's overcast and raining a bit). If it's really bad we'll go to St. Peter's. One way or another, I'm hoping we'll see the spooky Capuchin crypt - it's just really too cool. And now off I go.
