We are just learning how to get around Rome and it is time to leave!
Our day started with difficulty waking up for our self proclaimed 6:15am wake up call when the hotel called us at 7:15 for the wake up call sponsored by Trafalgar I said one of Tony Soprano's favorite words and slept for an extra 20 minutes.
|Pyramid of Caius Cestius|
With Trafalgar we went to the Vatican. We skipped the long tine, but still had to wait. They say today was the busiest or second busiest day of the entire year. It was amazing to see the center of the Catholic Church, but the rudeness and sheer amount of people downplayed the fun it should have been. Kristin found the Sistine Chapel to be most enjoyable and Josh found the St. Peter's Basilica to be most enjoyable.

Josh's Favorite Thing of the Day:
Kristin's Surprise of the Day:
How unholy the Vatican felt. I wanted to pray, meditate in silence; really feel close to God. Instead I felt rushed, hot, and frustrated.
Josh's Surprise of the Day:
Being able to find the Arco degli Acetari. He was impressed with us :)
