When in Rome, do as the Romans

Eat their food...
(This one's for you, Mom)
drink their water....

... and enjoy their scenery

A few other things I have learned in these past two days:

Church in Italian + Jet lag is not a good combo. But we enjoyed it nonetheless.

I learned that I have a phobia of enclosed spaces. Especially the hot enclosed spaces leading to the top of St. Peters.

And no, my camera isn’t tilted- it’s the walls!

However, 600 steps later, the view was definitely worth it.
Even after going to St. Peter’s a few times, the sheer size of it still amazes me!

We even have a great view of it from our hotel

Another thing I’ve learned is that I think I like taking pictures of objects and buildings more than of people. So Marissa, these are for you.
