Shipped nine boxes of books, etc. to Nawlins' yesterday.
Today, I am packing up everything that's going in my luggage.
Also, Big Time Cleaning, i.e. fighting with the Dust Bunnies.
Two things about Rome I will NOT miss: 1) the bugs and 2) the dust.
Bugs. I've spent many nights here trying to stay away from gnats, mosquitoes, no-see-ums, and spiders. There's nothing quite like being awakened at 3am by the hungry buzzing of a Tiger Mosquito in your ear!
Dust. Since the priory doesn't have A/C, the windows have to stay open. This means metric tons of dust flowing through the building and settling on my stuff. I've learned to cover vulnerable electronics, but the CPAP machine I use can't be covered. . .which means I probably have the dust-weight equivalent of a small pagan temple resting in my lungs.
Ah well. . .siamo in Italia!
