Rome Day 1 and 2 (Gus)

Roma has been absolutely crazy! Imagine Mexico City traffic with a bunch of Vespas and you have Roma! We couldn't figure out the Metro system to get to the hotel and good thing because we would have had to walk up the big ass hill to get to our hotel. We got in around lunch time and we remember watching this special about McDonalds and the most luxurious was in Rome by the Spanish Steps. We had to do it. It was a zoo but we made it through with some pics and a brown bag lunch perfect to enjoy on the Spanish steps.

After we chilled by the Spanish steps we waked down a little street littered with Gucci, Pucci and Ferragamo. Took a left and marched towered the Colosseum! I was literally speechless.

After we got kicked out of the Colosseum at closing time we saw this ghetto fabulousness try and go in through the exit. Yes, those are magazine cover tights...LMAO!

I saw this guy on our tour with an AS Roma bag and I wanted to go by the store. We took a little stroll back toward the hotel and we didn't find the AS Roma store but we saw this cool fountain. The Trevi or something like that...hehe?

On the way back to the hotel we ended up just stopping at these little cafe's and getting a bunch of goodies to eat in our room. The next morning we woke up early and hit up the Vatican tour we booked. We got right in but we heard later in the hotel that a women was mugged right at the entrance. Be careful!!!

The Vatican museum was special. I can't even begin to tell you what we saw it was so rich with culture and beauty. They hired the best and stole the rest is the best way I can explain it. On top of everything they won't let you take pics of the 16th chapel...but I did anyway(Cypress Hill Reference)!

Hanging with JC...again!

St. Pete's had some cool Pope mummies and a few ninja works of art. One by Michelangelo was put in glass because a few years back some crazy guy came in with a hammer and starting going at it. It's still amazing!

The Vatican is the smallest country in the world with its own Military(The Swiss Guard) and its own post office we sent post cards to ourselves...and lots of Money (it works on the Euro).

After our Vatican adventures we hit up the Pantheon and the Piazza Navona. We were dead dog tired and decided to stay at the hotel for dinner.


  1. Ha ha. Gus of course saw thes and demanded a pic! Funny stuff right? We have come across a lot of interesting outfits but I don't have the ninja skills to catch them all.
