Although it is considerably warmer and muggier in Genova than Paris or Vienna were, it has mainly been overcast and raining on and off since I arrived in Italy. So when the sun came out on Thursday I put on a light shirt, rolled up my jeans and headed outside. I’m a Washington girl and I really don’t mind the rain, , but I noticed what a difference in my mood it made to have the sun shining that day.
After some good walking I went into a couple of the art museums in the historical center of the city, both located in beautiful palaces. As I was getting ready to leave one of the museums and wandering towards the exit a women who was working asked me if I wanted to see the panorama view from the top of the museum. I of course said, um, yes please! and followed her to the elevator that took us to the roof.
Being up there, with the sun shining and a cool breeze blowing, was absolutely perfect. I couldn’t thank the sweet woman enough for showing me such a special spot.

By the way, I’m in Rome this weekend! Here’s a little peek at some of the fun. I’ll share more early this week!
