With four days of leisure at our disposal, Paul, Carter and I strolled through Villa Borghese over Easter weekend.
Highlight: It’s already a beautiful place with fountains, museums and vast stretches of grass but now everything is starting to bloom.
Low point: A herd of unruly dogs, ever so lightly managed by their Italian owners, appeared as we stretched out on the grass. A spaniel took my shoe. Another trotted over and raised his leg, actually aiming for my right shin! I managed to shoo him away before any damage was done, at least not physically.
