We received a travel brochure from Denison University about a trip to Florence and Rome.  Since Pat was an art major, we decided to go.  It turned out that we were the only people from Denison on the trip, but there was a nice group of people from many colleges and universities who had gotten the same brochure.  We had a wonderful time and got to see many things Pat had always wanted to see.

I have broken this down to multiple pages to save time in loading the entire document.
