1972 Roberta's Italy postcards

Roberta continues her good times in Europe with two more postcards from Italy.  Transcriptions follow.
Roma (Rome) Italy postcard mailed July 11, 1972
July 11, 1972
Hi!  Well - Rome is something else!!  Really something - as you are looking out of the bus on one side you are missing what's on the other side!

Went yesterday to the Coloseum - really neat to just let your imagination go!!

Went and had an American breakfast - O.J., pancakes, with maple syrup & butter. And I don't usually like maple syrup!!  Will write more tomorrow.  Love, Bert

Capri Italy postcard mailed July 14, 1972 
July 14, 1972
Dear Family,

Hi!  Went yesterday to Island of Capri and from there to Blue Grotto.  Was so beautiful!

Then today went to a cameo factory (didn't even buy anything ) and then to Pompeii!  Can't get over everything there!  The jewelry, the dentist's tools, etc. etc.  I'm anxious to get home now & get out my Western Civilization book again.

I didn't like Naples at all – but we didn't spend too much time there!  WRITE!!  Love, Bert
