 We got up early today and headed over to the Vatican City, i was loving it because i got to buy another small flag to sew onto my bag. After a dreadful day yesterday of solid rain from start to finish we were luckier today and the rain was only scattered showers.

There was an opportunity today to go to one of the Popes sermons, and we thought about it for a while, the only real reason being that we went to one of the Dalai Lamas teachings in India and thought we could do a religious leader checklist. But when we realised that the Dalai Lamas teaching was boring and full of annoying people we thought it would be much the same,and seeing as we are in no way shape or form religious it seemed a waste of time.

So we made use of the opportunity to avoid some of the crowds heading there after looking around the Piazza and inside St Peters Basillica.

Laughing at tourists getting told off by the Swiss guard for going right up to their faces and taking photos of them, we headed to the Vatican museum.

What a museum this was, and in truth worth the price, you could of literally spent days in here walking round,we walked around the museum at a briskish pace and saw some amazing works of art, but for me the Sistine chapel was an absolute masterpiece. I did get in trouble from the Swiss guard for taking photos but everyone was doing it so i couldnt care less. We spent about 4 hours in all here and also had lunch. Before slowly making our way back to the otherside of Rome to our hostel.

At the hostel we decided to go out with some American girls from our dorm. They were nice girls but then one started telling us about this list she had. And her basic plan for Europe was to fuck as many guys from as many different countries as she could. And if she had already got lucky with say a greek guy, she wasnt interested in another. We really were quite shocked at this and thought alot less of her. But me being a guy and not liking to see slags like that go to waste i went straight to the bar and told the gathering of blokes there about her, and who did and didnt qualify for her list. Straight away an Australian guy peered over to her and accepted the challenge immediatly . Good Lad!!!
