Assisi: It is difficult to visit Assisi with professional tour guides, when you have been to Assisi many times before. They bring the cultural and religious, I bring the spiritual.
Day started with Mass, then a trip to the Forum; then I left the tour for a bit and headed off to Gammarelli, Pantheon, Pranzo, Trevi, St. Gaspar, Dinner with Joan Lewis, and then back home where I ran into a parishioner from St. Edward that was delighted to see me.
