Italia: first impressions of Roma

Sunday, June 17, 2012

so happy not to be flying anymore!  Well... some of us are happier than others.... (hah. Ashley!)
I had been awake for 24+ hours at this point... it is impossible to sleep on the plane.
 I flew from Chicago to Rome, and fell asleep for what seemed like a really long time.  I woke up and decided to check the little tv in the aisle to see how much longer the flight was... I thought maybe 2 hours?

Looked up anxiously and the screen pops up

Duration:  6.5 hours!

SIX and a half HOURS?!... I wanted to die.  Obviously I didn't die, but needless to say it was a very very long flight. 

Broccoli trees!  Everywhere!
We spotted the LDS missionaries leaving McDonald's in Roma!  Ha
this is the view from our hotel of Rome.  See St. Peter's Basilica (the Vatican)?

funny looking toilets... also notice the adapter plugged into the wall! That was fun to get used to....
the view of the bathroom from my bed.. You can see the blow dryer in the bathroom (the thing that looks like a mounted vacuum!)
We were lucky to be able to see St Peter's Basilica from our hotel room.  (the Vatican).  It was so beautiful!

Another view from our hotel.  We were so lucky to be on the top floor--we had our own terrace!

first Roma sunset!  Bellisima!
