Miles to go before we sleep
We did ALOT of walking on this trip. We chose to walk many places because they seemed awfully close and the metro was so convoluted it took almost as long as walking and involved almost as much walking. (Plus, all the kids were a bit freaked out about the metro after Mary got pickpocketed on Monday morning while riding the metro to the Vatican.) Cori and Courtnie had pedometers with them for the trip. We were consistently getting 16,000 steps and more per day. Frank was figuring that was something like 8-10 miles. The kids did amazingly well keeping up as long as we didn't make them wait too long for food and we promised gelatto.
