July 7- Thessaloniki, Istanbul, and Rome

It’s been an interesting day. No touring on the schedule but lots of travel. It was breakfast in Thessaloniki, lunch in Istanbul, and dinner in Rome. It’s amazing what modern travel can do for us!

On the drive from the airport to the hotel we came to a stop light. A man stepped out in front of us and then started juggling flaming torches. Welcome to Rome!

Tonight we will stay in a hotel in the historic district and then tomorrow we will move to an apartment located near the Vatican that I found through Air B&B. 

Our experience on Turkish Air was very positive. The food was delicious! It’s the only airline I know that has a chef in white coat and hat as part of the flight crew!

Overflowing with gratitude,
