I just got back from a trip to Rome Italy that I took by myself. Like my trip to Paris it was great to see another great place in the world. On this trip I feel like i had a better time. It is summer so there's fantastic weather in Rome and I was also in a better mental spot now then when I was in Paris.

at The Colosseum

The first site that I checked out was the Colosseum. It truly is amazing think of how old that structure is, what it has withstood and what crazy things happened inside it's walls.

So much history is in the area near the Colosseum. There's an arch much like The Arc in Paris.

Nearby is The Forum. An area that once was filled all kinds of structures and people. There's not much that remains but what does it still fascinating.

I walked around so much that I would just run into history. One thing Romans were famous for was chariot races. I found the land that once held these events...and it was disappointing to know that a stadium that housed thousands of spectators now is a run down park that you shouldn't go to after dark.

While I was in Italy I took an excursion to the island of Capri. I met a great girl named Vanessa from Singapore and we hung out for the day.

The Island of Capri was sooo beautiful. I would love to go back and stay for longer. The view from the top of the island was spectacular.

The food was delicious. I ate gelato for breakfast ...lunch ....and dinner. Although I did eat regular food.

I've got more to share so part 2. is coming....

I am not writing in response to your trip to Italy, although it sounds like it was a great time. I am writing to let you know that there are some guys out there, including myself , that are decent men who truly care about the woman they are with. I went through a divorce in 2000, and I have dated...and that is all. I meet women who are very interested in how much money I make, or what I drive, but not about me. I have read your blogs and listen to you during my drive to work and you seem like a wonderful woman with everything to offer. Great sense of humor, smart, upbeat, kind, and good looking. I would characterize you as "the girl next door with an edge". I am tired of dating and trying to find someone to care about. And the whole thing about love showing up when you are not looking is far fetched also. If I am ever lucky enough to see you out somewhere, I would love to buy you a drink and talk to you about all this craziness of looking for love.
