Happy Fourth of July...in Rome!

This year marks the second time in my life I was overseas during the Fourth, the first being my last night in Amsterdam before heading home from my first time in Europe. I drank a lot and checked out the Red Light District with some Canadians. Way to celebrate.
Today I decided to wander aimlessly with no real plans, except for reach the Pantheon, which I did. Before there, I made my way to another Basilica, home to Michelangelo's Moses with horns due to misinterpretation of the Bible apparently, and while there, enjoyed an impromptu choir concert from some out-of-towners from some southern state, recognized the southern drawl is all.
The Pantheon was big...so are a lot of buildings here. I guess I'm starting to get numb to it all, so it's a good time to move on.
I escaped that unharmed and headed for a bookstore to pick something up since my current hostel has no exchange, at least nothing in English. I found something cheap with a lot of pages because tonight I'm celebrating with a book.
Enjoy the fireworks without me everyone!
