Day 53 … Fly to Rome, Italy

Unfortunately today we leave Istanbul, we had a great time in this contagious city of friendly people, another city awaits, unfortunately Rita is not well, food bug ?? She is really crook, toilet is her friend for a while, not good at all.  Picked up from our apartment at 10.30 & driven to airport for 2.30pm flight, small plane,  some kind of Airbus 320?  Flight going ok so far, Rita trying to get some sleep in seat next to me on the aisle.  She is not good.  

Well we arrived in Rome, caught a taxi into Roma apartment, it is in the 5th floor of an old ish building, heaps of graffiti here, same as in Athens, everywhere, some really good.  Our pad is the loft with a loft bed, view out over the local neighborhood & train line, busy, busy, great area, everything you need , tram 200 mtrs  away, 5 stops to Rome Termini station & most of the tourist attractions.  Rita to bed early, really picked up something bad !!

Next day Tuesday ..54… Rita still no good, I got her some medication, did some local shopping, reasonable prices, we will have to wait it out until Rita picks up, couple of days rest will do us good ….

Next day Wednesday ..55… Medicine seems to have helped, Rita bit better, we are just going to do a local area walk today, she is pretty weak still, at least bug seems to have settled a bit ….
