Any ideas for beating the heat? I`m just healing a broken bone and so may have to take it a little easy on the walking, but I`m supposed to get out of my "boot" by next week.

Grandson Jonathan and I are coming on the July 8 trip. We're from central Texas, will be traveling British Air from Austin to London, then on to Rome, arriving mid afternoon, just in time for our first gathering. Jonathan was wondering about appropriate attire. The booklet is a little vague. He's packing golf slacks and shorts (they're cool, don't wrinkle and he already has some) but we're wondering about regular shorts and/or jeans.
