Through CDG Int'l Airport, we arrived in Rome today. Our flight from Philadelphia to New York was canceled due to weather and so we were rescheduled on an Air France flight from Philadelphia to Paris. We then caught another Air France flight from Paris to Rome. On the second flight, I claimed the window seat, but was saddened to discover that the window was a lie.
After arriving in Rome, we did some exploring and ran into Dr. Benson and his family. Dr. Benson suggested that we climb the steps to a platform overlooking the city (at the Capital building, I think) and there we were able to get a good view of much of Rome including the Forum and Colosseum.
