Rome the Second Time Refreshed

We just updated critical chapters of Rome the Second Time, including the chapters on food and drink.  Because entertainment venues change so frequently in Rome, one really can't ever rely on one being open  - or closed.  But we brought you as up to date as possible.  The link to the Updates is at right of the blogsite.  Originally the Updates were designed for the ebook versions of Rome the Second Time, which has over 100 hyperlinks.  But it's equally useful for the paperback users as well.

To give you a taste of the ebook versions, we provided a Google overlay of one of the book maps that appears in those versions.  This example is from Itinerary 9:  Monte Mario (from Chapter 4: "Getting Away Inside Rome").
Above, me trying to read maps - so we know how hard it is and we've tried to make it easier.

Having only just purchased your excellent book is there any way I can access/purchase the Google overlays of the book maps?

Thanks, Bruce - and a good question. When we did the Updates (at right), we debated about putting in the maps links... and decided not to. But your quick response is making us rethink that. I'm leaning towards doing a separate document that is just the Google map links. I likely won't do this for a couple days. In the meantime, if you're in Rome and there are a couple you'd like to have right away, let me know and I can post those in a Comment here. Dianne

Thanks, Dianne. We are still in the planning stage of our holiday so there is no rush.

Hi Bruce - the Google Maps are now available at this link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/56172132/Google-Maps-Versions-to-Rome-the-Second-Time-book-maps. The link also is available at right - under the New Book Updates. We'll do a post on the Google Maps within the next couple weeks. Thanks for asking! Dianne (and apologies for the delay - Google Blogger comments has been "down" for over a week).
