|Mailing the postcards :)|
Shortly after we got back from the Vatican and lunch, I started not feeling well. My throat was sore and I started getting a cough. Boo! Luckily, one of my roommates Haleigh, had some Emergen-C that I have been taking. Last night I got a good night's sleep and was able to sleep in a little this morning. I hadn't slept in, since we arrived on Monday. I simply got too run down, but thankfully I'm feeling better this morning. I just have some sniffles left over.
Yesterday afternoon I had class and then went with my roommates to the Moses statue and along the way saw the Colosseum. We're going to tour the inside of it next week.
|I don't like taking pictures inside museums, so this is actually a photo outside on the board. haha.|
We had dinner as a class and then we went on a night walking tour. My friend Meylin and I walked the Spanish steps and people-watched, which is one of my favorite things to do in Rome.
|I had some sort of asparagus lasagna.|
Today, Meylin and I went to the Basilica of St. Mary in Rome, which is Michelangelo's last architectural work. He finished it at 86.

Shortly after Meylin and I visited the park , we stopped for gelato and rested our feet.
|Meylin's yummy gelato!|
There is no telling how many miles we have walked this trip so far. I wish I would have brought a pedometer with me, because it would be interested in know.
I am getting better with my sense of direction around Rome and am learning when things are. It does help that there are signs like this to help :)
Five days in and I'm tired of Italian food, so I got Chinese tonight.

I must give a shout out to my friend Meylin for taking pictures :)
