in rome

im going to write a small amount at this point as im really upset and down right pissed off at this computer, i wrote one huge post and lost it just to rewrite and lose it again i dont have the time to write all that i wrote on it before. i wish that i could just smash this computer outside onto a car. really . sorry for all the anger but its so upsetting. in Rome , where it is very dirty and nasty. all the trash is in the road and people just throw things out on to the grass and walk away with out caring. yesterday we got to see everything in the vactian city ! the sistine chapel was disppointing because it is alot smaller then they really make it out to be. but st peters is really amazing huge and it is really really just breathtaken in size. it uses all the space inside , so its filled with so much art and such. there was a wedding going on as well at the time so that was cool. we saw the peità as well which was really hard to get up to and see, worst then mona lisa. then we took a walk around as just touched base with the coloseum, archs, spanish steps, captial hill, and the roman forums. its really great to go there to old ruins and hear all the storys about them in their time. today aud and i got an early start this morning and took the tram and subway intocentral rome. we went hunting for a altar piece called the estacy of st. theresain a chapel we tracked down, then we were off to see the breathtaking trevifountain ( i skipped out on seeing it last night so aud insisted that she let drag me there to see it, it's exquisite!!), then we explored the pantheon andfound another chapel adorned by dynamic carravagio paintings. after taking abreak for lunch we met up with the rest of our group for a tour through the coloseum and the forum ruins. we roamed around a bit after splitting off from them to get gellati and nab a few souveniers. we leave for pompeii at 7 tomorrow morning but will be there for only a few hours. my sunburn is all gone on my feet and my chest pelled off today. the sheet of skin that peeled off was so large that aud could have drawn on it , really mom you would have loved it . also im running out of monday so if anyone wants to donate.... just kidding sorry its so short iàm just running out of time and im just mad.love you all and i miss you
