italy is amazing! i'm having the time of my life. we went out in roma today and it was great. in the morning we headed to the vatican to go through the musems. it was so neat. we saw the sistine chapel, some of michaelanglos work, some da vincis, roman and greek statues, and just some amazing works of art. the whole musem was just gorgeous with everything that was in it. it was hard to take pictures but it was incredible. the picture above is st. peters chapel. we got to it and the line was like 4 miles long. thats not even a joke too. we decided not to go in it but just looking at it and seeing the beauty was enough. we also got to see the plaza and that was just incredible. the columns everywhere and the balcony was just beautiful. probley my favorite part about the vatican was its pure beauty. i loved looking out the windows and seeing the pretty green trees and fountains and old buildings everywhere. it was breathtaking.
next we walked for a loooonnnng time. but it was cool to see all the sites and just roma. it was beautiful. everyone lives in apartments, like the ones in the very first picture. the traffic is incredible. everyone drives so fast, parks everywhere, and it feels like you are going to run into someone. seriously, there are cars and vespas everywhere. they are all small cars too. the vespas go up and down the lanes and the lines don't mean anything to these people. its really quite cool. they are always cutting each other off and its so great to watch. after we walked for a while we ate lunch at a litlle italian cafe. it was so fun and cute. the food was soooo good. so in italy, there are some wierd customs you have to get used too. first, they eat their salad after their dinner. that was wierd for me and i messed that up the first time. second, they don't like ice. i asked the waitress for some ice, and she gave me the funniest look. i guess europeans don't like ice. i love ice. i couldn't believe it. needless to say, she never brought me any ice.
