Day 99- Thurs., Apr. 14, 2011–Civitavecchia, Italy

     Civitavecchia is located in Latium, west central Italy, on the Tyrrhenian Sea is still the chief port of Rome.  Civitavecchia is only 37 miles northwest of Rome the capital and largest city in Italy.  It was 54 degrees this morning with 20% humidity.  We have sailed 27, 348 nautical miles.

     We decided not to take the train into Rome because we knew there would be a lot of walking and we had just been there with Doug.  I would like more than one day.  We decided to walk around the port.  I gave away my map, so I don’t know the names of any of the buildings.  We played Wii before we left the ship.  There was a shuttle to take us to the entrance of the port.

 IMG_1479 We then found the market, which was getting ready to close up.  We didn’t know everything closed from 1-4 on Thursdays.  We then walked through the Old City and back to the ship.  We saw lots of Smart Cars.

     After dinner our show was mind-reader and mentalist Graham Jolley.  He was very entertaining.

For one human being to love another:  that is perhaps the  most difficult of all our tasks.  The ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.”  –Rainer Maria Rilke-
