We made it to Rome without any problems delays or other little stressful moments that you sometimes get with an international flight. Traveling in the middle of laborday weekend seems to work out extremely well.
There wasn't a whole lot to take pictures of, LAX, London Heathrow, and the Rome Airports are all about the same, except you hear a lot more Italian in the Rome airport, but that doesn't come through in a picture anyway.
Now off to bed after a really long day.
OK. I typed all of that last night when the internet wasn't working. We slept great until about 4:00am & then woke up - going to take a couple of days to adjust to the time zone. We are planning to walk around Rome today and see the sights.
