I have something I have to tell you all... a warning. Do not walk about at night in the roman "suberbs" no matter how many people you are with. My housemates and I (6 of us total) missed a bus back to our apartment after dinner last night and were stalked/surrounded by a rather large group of guys. We found a group of people and stuck close to them until the guys let, we were all a little nervous, but no harm done. I just whipped my hair back and forth.
Today we went to the heart of Rome, saw the Coloseum, the Roman Forum, and many many other breath taking sights! We ate pasta and gelato; ottimo (exellent)! I have no idea what type of gelato i ordered but it was a little spicy... I think I will try something different next time.
My apartment is beautiful, but everything here is TINY! The rooms, the cups, the showers... not very roomie, but very nice. The housematea are wonderful, love then.
Ciao for now
