As I reported yesterday, I did resist the temptation to go immediately to sleep.  That did not keep me from sleeping till noon today.  (A tribute to how quiet this hotel is!)  Upon getting my feet in gear, I walked up to the Via Vittorio Veneto for a big lunch outdoors; then I walked in some areas which I particularly enjoyed so many years ago: the Pincio park, the Spanish Steps, and Piazza del Popolo.  The temperature is 77 degrees and it's sunny.  There was supposed to be a big demonstration here at 3:00 pm in Piazza Venezia, but I avoided that area.
