Roaming around Rome

Not much to report about today.  We slept in and then got our car lined up so we could go to Pompei tomorrow.  We went back to some of the same places we had been the first day.  The Pantheon had been closed on New Year's Day, so we returned.  Saint Peter's Basilica had such a long line the day before, so we went in there and saw the Pieta.  We bought a Prada purse for 20 Euros that I will tell everybody at home that I bought in Rome.  No one has to know it's fake.  The weather was perfect and we had a great day just roaming around.
