Rome, part 2

1. My favorite part of updating my blog is that my dashboard comes up in Italian. It's true, we're here!
2. The place of the day was the Vatican. We had a 2 hour guided tour of the gardens this morning and a 3 hour tour of the Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica this afternoon. It was a very historical day and if I'm able to remember half of what my pictures are, I'll be happy.
3. We walked on floors that were 2000 years old, saw the residence of the Pope prior to 1747, walked on the current Pope's helipad, stood next to St. Peter's tomb, and were up close and personal with most of Michelangleo's works. All in all, a pretty unbelievable day.
4. I had the best croissant, gnocchi, and gelato today.
