School trip number 3 was a three day stint in Rome. Hopped on the train with all 50ish of my classmates, then on to a bus out to Tivoli to see Villa d’Este and Hadrain’s Villa. BUT it was Monday and they were both closed… Planning problems clearly with the organizers of this trip. So some rearranging and we began a tour of some of ancient Rome. Began at the coliseum past the forum (which you can’t get into now without paying) up to the capitoline hill, past the first Jesuit church, into another important Jesuit church and ending at the Pantheon. Sorry for not going into much detail here. I've already seen most of these places so I was tuning out just a bit. The Coluseum of course was more incredible than I remembered.
After the tour we were free for the evening. My roommates and I then headed to clean up and out to dinner. After a stop in a shoe store we came out to pouring rain and ran to the restaurant and waited soaking wet for a table, not willing to go out again to find a new one. Dinner was yummy (squash blossom white pizza, veggie red pizza and yummy salad and of course some vino) and we were able to wait out the storm in the restaurant and head home in clearer weather.
