Roma

Days 2 and 3 Getting lost and staying out until sunrise.


View Italy on Khandilee's travel map.

We are starting to feel a little more comfortable getting around now. Still using our feet instead of the (probably) more reliable and less tiresome transit system. I'm not certain why but it's just nicer seeing things while walking instead of from a window.

We are all having a difficult time adjusting to the time change. Corey and I are night workers anyway and Trinity is just stuck doing whatever the rest of us do (poor thing). So the last two days we have pretty much slept for most of the day then wandered around at night. It's got it's good points and also the drawbacks. The major drawback is that most of the restaurants are closing when we are just getting hungry, as well as the stores. We have need to stop at the grocery and get a few things like laundry soap and razors (legs are a little hairy at this point), but it's all closed when we are awake. We have eaten pizza around 0100 for the past two nights due to that being the only thing open....well, that and gelato. Did I mention the gelato yet? OMG! Delicious!! I think I could live on gelato....

Corey got lost wandering around last night on his own. He ended up on some highway, he thinks he might have been headed to Europe!! Fortunately, he made it back unscathed around sunrise. Night time is the best for photos of some of the major landmarks. Trinity and I have the Trevi fountain almost to ourselves this morning around 0430. Just us, a group of 4 European drunk kids and about 6 vagrants sleeping on the steps.

This evening, we went to the Pantheon. Got a few pics but it was closed so we will have to make it back during the daytime in order to see the inside. Everything here is soooo massive. It makes me feel very small and insignificant. My pics do NOT do any of it any justice. It is so beautiful and peaceful here.

Going to try to get up during the day tomorrow or uhh today....and get back on a normal schedule (it's 0230 now).

Ciao
