My final Roman adventure!
Today we slept in as much as we could considering that huge market is right outside our window and starts setting up around 5am. We began the day organizing our things because we went to lunch at a place we really like that had delicious lasagna. Its too bad I don’t know the names of any of these places… After that we did some meaningless souvenir shopping (I got a turtle magnet :)) and headed to MACRO- museum of contemporary art. It was such an awesome museum, even the bathroom was a work of art. Even though it was kinda confusing to get around, we had fun. I also got a cool book with basically every place we visited in Rome- def a good investment to remember the trip by.
Next we went back to the apartment to get ready for our farewell dinner (after swimming through the streets of Rome because of the down pour)! I got some bruchetta and pizza ortolana (mixed veggies & mozzarella). It was a delicious way to end the trip. But, I can not wait to detox from all these carbs I’ve been eating. After we were all done eating, we went around and said why we loved about Rome and the trip and even though it sounds really cheesy it was kinda nice. I can’t believe this trip went so quickly and I’ve learned so much in such a short amount of time.
After dinner we went back for the really good house flavor of gelato from Frigidarium. After eating about half.. I dropped mine SPLAT right on the street. Alley, Vicki and Val pretty much died laughing as I stood facing one of my biggest fears (right below getting my hair caught in a fan). This is why I’m not allowed to eat ice cream off cones. I underestimate my strength and break the cone. I was so sad. But then I took Vicki’s and finished hers cause she was so stuffed. I’m glad I could provide entertainment for the end of the night.
Now we’re packed and ready to go on our flight at noon. Can’t wait to get so swollen from being dehydrated for the past 3 weeks. I’m so sad to leave but now the next chapter in my summer begins.. MUSE/ moving into my house/ turning 21!! I’ve met so many great people on this trip and I am so grateful for the experience! now all I want to do is travel EVERYWHERE and learn EVERYTHING.
Till we meet again, Rome!
