Tue: back to Villa del Priorato di Malta by 0930hrs and thank goodness there were only 2ppl there ahead of us. My camera was not good enough to capture any shots, but Ian got some. This one is a pix of a book cover –  was well worth the time to peep thru’ this key-hole!

Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, national museum of 21st-century arts is a national museum of contemporary art and architecture and what a complete contrast from what have been in view for the past 2weeks. Liked the ceiling in the cafe which actually gave the sound like life-music thru’ the speakers…

The ink from this fountain aggravated my coughing and really got me sneezing non-stop that I had to leave the room.

Interesting sign and space usage. Nice sofa design, but not comfortable for short ppl like me! Maybe better for those with a more intimate relationship!!

Museo Nazionale Etrusco The National Etruscan Museum is a museum of the Etruscan civilization, housed in the Villa Giulia –

National Gallery of Modern Art, is an art gallery founded in 1883 and dedicated to modern and contemporary art; the full name is Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea. Sometimes time&life can certainly be soo Out of Joint!!!

Was too tired to join the group for their evening walks.

Wed: group out shopping and more sight-seeing. Short morning walk by-passing this dog-walker. Decided on the bus-tour – do not deal well with the heat, crowds and noise. Even then someone tried to con me in bright daylight on top of the stairs by the Metro. Survivour of the fittest and hopefully I am no longer the naive person I was when I first visited Rome another life-time in LaLaLand.

Unable to live to the fullest in Rome – was just so out of sort the last 3 evenings, but still enjoyed my oldest friends to the fullest. Also big cites&crowds+the heat are no longer my forte. Maybe being on the go for 6months have something to do with it too.

Thu: dark and early to the Metro EUR1.50 S$2.40 to connect with the regional train to the airport EUR8 S$12.75. Fight from FCO-OSL was smooth&on schedule with views of the Italian coastline and beautiful sightings of the Alps.

Good thing about Budget flights is that you get the same views as full price commercial – KK

Arr into refreshing temps, 5-9°c with lovely Fall colours and the last rose blooms of the year. May&fam are away in Tromsø to celebrate B’s mother 70Bday.

Take time daily to reflect on how much you have. It may not be all that you want but remember someone somewhere is dreaming to have what you have ― Germany Kent
