Subject: Re: : Portraits in Piazza Navona/Rome
Dear Marcy, I am very glad that you asked this question. I sort of conduct a one-woman campaign against travel snobbery, and I think that if something sounds like fun to someone, they should feel free to openly ask questions about it, without embarrassment.

I get my hackles up when travellers suggest to others that they skip corny activities, or heavily visited sites. My husband and I have had a wonderful time doing some really corny stuff on trips.

We spent a hilarious afternoon in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in London, and still laugh at the pictures we took there. I am a huge fan of Absolutely Fabulous and I treasure my photo of myself and the wax Patsy!!!

To sum up my thoughts on the subject: Each of us likes to do different things. Just because I like my travels a certain way, that certainly doesn't mean you should.

I hope your portrait from the Piazza Navona is fabulous. By the way, I think the Tartuffo at Tre Scalini in the Piazza Navona is a treat that is delicious. Tourists flock there. It's expensive to eat at the outdoor tables. But if the day is pleasant, and I'm anywhere near the Piazza Navona, you will find me at a table on the Piazza, scarfing down a Tartuffo!

Just my 2 cents, Have a great time Debbie
