After a delicious lunch, we all walked to Piazza Navona, a square where lots of artists and musicians come to entertain and sell thier works. I really wish I had brought my guitar, because I think I would have been able to make a little money by playing there!
After our after lunch stroll, we came back to the hostel, where the girls napped, and I read.
We then went out to dinner, which is a big ordeal with Italians.
I've eaten pretty well in Italy so far. :)
Over dinner, the girls were very interested to hear about America. They said the only things they have to go by are a relatively biased news and Hollywood movies, both of which don't really tell the exact truth about the States. What's funny is that they are so unknowing about our culture and way of life, yet they've seen tons of American movies and know lyrics to more American songs than I do! I found that to be sort of humorous. I dispelled some myths about us, and told them all about the past election and that not everyone in America voted for Bush jr., the first time or the second time. They were under the impression that we all voted for him for his second term. I quickly corrected that. They also love Obama. Everyone I've met in Europe does.
