One Week at a Time

So, the one thing I've really learned about Rome as a city now, is that its extremely difficult to know when things will and won't be open. Last night, a few of us decided to try go out since we only had three nights left in this Italian city. After some uh... hanging out in the kitchen we went to the nearest night bus to take us to Trastevere. After waiting a good 20 minutes, the bus just went right by us! No hesitation or anything. It was the most annoying thing in the world. So, Artemis, Amy, and Brian decided to leave and Luke and I walked to Trastever. On the way his sandal broke, he cut his toe, and when we got there everything was closed and we ended up just walking back. It was still nice though.

Sleep at 3:00 am.

Today we had to meet Sarah and Cris at the Colosseum at 9. Getting up proved to be a task. After we got there we went to the place across from the Colosseum where the gladiators would live and train. It was disappointingly very dirty because of the bars near it. After that we went to the Trajan markets where Erin and Malachy, the two short term lovers, presented on the area. Then we went to the Roman Forum again and went into Augustus' house which was closed the other day when we tried to go.

Now, I just had the most awkward, well not the MOST awkward, but the maids came to clean, and I didn't want to be here while they did so becuase the kitchen was a mess. So, I ran out quickly and literally stood on the floor above waiting for them to be done, when that took forever I walked outside for a bit, and after that they were FINALLY done.

Now, I must take a nap.
