We had breakfast at our hotel in Rome. As we walked around the hotel with Aidan, we got several pleasant smiles and remarks from the hotel staffers. I would even hear many remarking in Italian, "Que bella!" (meaning "So Beautiful"). At the breakfast buffet, the very nice Italian cook guy came over to our table just to greet Aidan, and said "hi," and touched him, saying, "Bella!" (beautiful). It was so nice to get such a warm and happy greeting from the Italians. Surely, they have not seen too many children in wheelchairs out and about in Rome, and yet the Italians still greeted Aidan with a friendly smile...rather than the awkward stare that we so often get here in America.
