Here’s the second set from my Italy 2011 vacation. After two nights in Venice, we took the train to Rome and spent three nights there. We saw the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Pantheon, and many of the Bernini sculptures I’ve been waiting my whole life to see. It was spectacular. It was also really hot. And there were crooked taxi drivers, and pick pockets, and lots of graffiti. Really, graffiti on priceless works of art… in the Vatican. Anyway, I have many conflicting emotions about my trip to Rome, but I’m still glad I went. Enjoy the pictures.
