It has been extremely hot here in Rome. Today the temperature reached 104 deegrees. We are here for four months - we can wait until it gets cooler to see the city. So we all rested inside. The apartment we are staying in dates back to the 1500's. It has very thick walls and looks into 2 inner courtyards so it is not exposed to direct sunlight so it stayed pretty cool.
Yesterday, Andy started work and Oliver and I were left on our own so we went to see the Crypt of the Capuchin Monks. This church crypt is decorated with the bones of thousands of monks. Their skeletons were dismantled and made into decorations on the walls, ceilings, floors. some of the monks remain intact, skin and everything, with their robes on, propped up on display. Unfotunately, they did not allow photography of any kind so I have no photos. I did find a good website with lots of photos here: http://www3.sympatico.ca/tapholov/pages/bones.html
Just outside the church is the Piazza Barberini and Bernini's Triton Fountain, the merman spouting water from a conch shell.
Ok, so, one photo.
