Rome

One week of holliday in Rome is over. We (Holy trinity – Lidija, Ines-Jana & myself) have seen most of the sights, including: Pantheon, Spannish steps, Fontana di Trevi, Monument of Vittorio Emanuelle, Forum Romanum with Palatin and Colloseus. We have also visited the Holy see museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peters basilica, which are all impressive. Too bad is that they leave too many people inside at the same time in Vatican museums, everyone is heading towards the Sistine chapel to see the “Last judgement” painting of Michelangelo, among the others. Vatican has preserved lots of sculptures and paintings from all Roman empire, inclusive sights from Greek and Aegyptian art. On the last day we sit down in a local pub, when a beardy guy came by. The first impression was, that he is some local guy, he was dressed up plainly ordinary. He sat by the next table, when people started talking with him. One of the waiters even brought a picture of him and asked him for an autograph. Later the waiter told us that the guys name is “Il Grande Cantante” Lucio Dalla. We only gathered good impressions on this trip, but one annoying fact is that Rome (Italy) has so many immigrants from Africa, which are really trying to annoy you, while you drink, eat or walk. They are asking for money or trying to sell you stuff, which you don’t need, and this happens nearly on every corner with monuments. Pictures from the trip are visible at my gallery website.
