First of all, a very Happy Easter to everyone. I hope you will have a wonderful day and maybe enjoy some of that Pizza Rustica I had mentioned earlier. It’s freezing cold in New Jersey, so we’ll have to bundle up to have that Easter Egg hunt.
Yes, we’re back at home, but later on in this post there’s a last little bit on our wonderful trip to Rome.
Being here has so filled my head with a flavor for ancient Rome! I’ve been able to finish the first draft of FATE CALLS, the Christmas vampire book thanks to the trip, but here’s a question for you –
What do you think is a sexier name: Hadrian or Adriano?
Let me know and you may find yourself in the dedication to this next novella.
During the first few days, I was wound up due to the time change and had the energy to chat with you. The last couple of days in Rome were so busy. We dropped into bed, exhausted most nights.
Here’s those final shots and photos. We’ve been all over Rome and even took a side trip to Tivoli and the amazing gardens there! All the fountains are fed from the river. The water is pumped through the fountains by using gravity as the water travels down the mountainside.
Be sure that you’re ready for the sounds of running water as there’s some more movies there of the fountains at Ville d’Este. You may even recognize some of the shots from the movies.
Here’s those pictures and movies for you.

You can go to the back of that fountain and here’s the view from there:
This is one of the more well-known fountains. It’s appeared in a number of motion pictures and yes, I forgot to turn the camera around!
