Day Nine of My Great Viking Adventure Part 2: Roma. A Sentimental Journey

Some things in Rome are eternal.  Like St. Peter's and Vatican City        
Others. like Campo de'Fiori are not so.
For years, I’ve actively avoided going anywhere near Rome.  Despite travel to Italy over the years, I wanted to lock Rome in my memory: To make Rome eternally the way it was in 1968 when I was 21 years old and had spent one of what turned out to be, the best years of my life there.   
I had gone to school there starting in the Fall of 1967, one of 28 students enrolled in the Rhode Island School of Design European Honors Program that year.
