Roma roma roma

Rome if you want to, Rome around the world

Switzerland was incredible and we were really sad to say goodbye but it was a good goodbye because we were heading for ROMA!! Well our last day in Switzerland was interesting. We spent it in Bern which is the capital. Upon a recomendation we went to the Rosegarden. It was probably the best idea we pursued. The view was gorgeous and it was fun to people watch. And of course the flowers were beautiful. I took lots of pictures for grandma. The rodies were blooming and the place smelled fantastic. Then we made our way up to the top of Gruten which is a hill overlooking the city. We went in the middle of a storm which sucked cause we couldnt really see the view but it was amazing to sit and watch the lightning and thunder. Ahh it was crazy. Then we had some free time and so we found some cheap food (yes, I had a hotdog and yes it was disgusting and the bread was too hard). We met two Korean girls heading on the night train as well and they were in the same car as us but not the same compartment. Well we headed out and the compartment was full of 4 girls. So totally not the experience as before. It was nice and we talked for a long time. Our train was 10 hrs long and they were getting off in Rome as well. I slept pretty darn well actually. I think last time it was just the fear of Hassan watching me sleep (Creepy!!!!!!). Anyway, we got here in Rome (Roma in Italian) and we checked into our hostel and then the girl here told us that there was a really good American tour guide giving a tour of the Vatican. So we got the information and headed over there. We had a great time walking around the area and there was a little saturday market type thing which was really cool!!! And we bought candied mandrain oranges which I have yet to try :( but we will see how good it is. OMG Two words... Dehydrated KIWIS!!!!!!! sooooo gooooddddd. OMG it was amazing. Then we went and got real gelato which was perfect for how incredibly hot it was today. It reached probably 95 not exagerating it was soooooo hot!!! I even asked at the desk how hot it was today and they said about 35 celsius so I just converted it and that is 95. I am pretty sure my face is burned cause I am warm just sitting here. Anyway, we got to see all of Vatican city for a really cheap priced tour which was good. He is from Louisianna and so we could understand everything he said, no translations needed :)
Well I cant talk too much cause this internet is free and there is a line but it IS free and there is a USB port so I can upload more pictures hopefully.
anyway
love you all
