30 Mar

We have been in Rome for a few days now. It is sorta like the New York of Italy. Tonight is out last night here!

The first day we arrived we walked to the hotel with our luggage, then we caught the metro to the forum which is an Ancient Roman ruin. Mainly explored Rome a little bit.

Second day we went to the Colosseum or Amphitheatre. I got a photo with “Roman soldiers.” We walked through the old city hall and our guide said that the path that we walked on was the time of Nero. We went to the “Mouth of Truth” and I got a photo of that as well. We also went to the Pantheon which is a chapel with a hole in the ceiling. It rained earlier in the day so there was a velvet rope around the puddle that was draining.

On the last day we went to the Vatican which is a state by itself in Italy. I sent mom and dad a postcard with the pope on it. [Which arrived after I got back home.]
