We spent last night on the train that took us from Cefalù to Rome. We all slept reasonably well, much better than on the plane last week. But it was hot when the air conditioning was turned off at different points in our journey.

I. gazing out the train window as we hurtle towards Rome.

E. cautiously taking his first bites of the complimentary breakfast offered by the train staff. We also received some pineapple juice and coffee.

Trying to gather our things and get our shoes on before we arrived at Roma Termini.

Waiting for the apartment owner to arrive in Rome.

E. and I. have become very good at setting up shop with their coloring and sticker books. Travelling with toddlers and small children is not always easy but these kids have become very adaptable in the last ten days.
