Roma

Italia

sunny

Being sick for six days sure stripped away any care that I had except for getting better. But now the story continues as we are finally out adventuring again!
We spent last night believing that we were never going to get better and that we were going to die. I woke up after an uninturrupted night of sleep, so today we are going to venture to Roma! We drove there in Gideon's BMW in about five hours. Nothing worth much of a note. The AC didn't work and I managed to put a crack in Gideon's bumper. Lame. Rome traffic is out of control. Round abouts the size of half a football field with three lanes of traffic. People swerving, honking, and jostling; organized mayhem. Our lovely GPS gave us such good directions that we fondly call her the wench. I've been very excited to see Rome and all her history. As we rounded a corner in the early evening, the Coliseum was there in all it's glory. As I did I had a physical sensation of my heart jumping into my throat. I mean look at it, there is the Coliseum of ROME! What a building. Because it was evening we were able to find a parking spot easily. Waking around Rome at night was very cool. There are monuments everywhere! Everything was closed for tours but it also meant that we had freedom to move around as the hoards had gone home already. The Fountain De Trevi was very nice. Some girls taking pictures there asked if they could take a picture with me. They explained that they were taking pictures with pretty people from every city they visited and I won. Ha! Jokes on them. I'm not photogenic. 
We ate an amazing Italian meal not 5 minutes from the fountain. Then we headed towards our hostel. The wench had us all over Rome before finally getting us to our destination. Healing body plus Rome equals sleepy sleepy.
