Well we had a busy first day in Rome. Our air shipment arrived at about 9 o clock this morning. We've spent all day unpacking it and getting it put where it goes. Our only excursion was a trip out this afternoon to the grocery store and to get some stamps. I've added some commentary to the pictures below.
The peppers in Italy are big......

We discovered that there is a flock of sheep in the field across from our house. Every morning a dog brings them out, where they graze for a few hours. Then he brings them back to wherever they go. (We can't see them when they disappear over the hill.)
This is a picture of the movers bringing over our air shipment.
When we went to the grocery store we saw an interesting sight. The butcher in the back was cutting up a whole calf for veal. It was pretty amazing. He was fast.....he pretty much cut the entire thing up while we watched. The store is about a mile from our house and is quite nice. The butcher (Danilo) is also nice and volunteered to grind us up meat for sausage or whatever we need.
