To the Vatican City! Met up with Logan and Nat for further kiwi domination. Early start with the intention of beating the queue to the Vatican museums/Sistine Chapel failed. Running behind schedule a bus didn't turn up for ages and ended up catching the camp ground shuttle at 8am - 45 minutes after ETD... Luckily line wasn't too bad, only waited about one and a half hours - fighting off tour guides and people selling umbrellas, fans and shawls. Dressed modestly (yes, it was a struggle) in various ensembles of tights, cardigans and sarongs we got our tickets, audio guides and tried to decide how best to tackle the massive expanse that is the Vatican Museums. Started in the Pinacoteca, with gazillions of paintings from way back...would have been lost without audio guides which gave us explanations on most things. Then onto some Egyptian stuff - a real mummy eeek, heaps of statues with broken penises (very cool - the statues...not the lack of penis!), got caught in the swarm of tourists past way too many tapestries and more paintings until what we had been waiting to see - the Raphael rooms and....dah dah dah...Sistine Chapel! Favourite was 'School of Athens' - and of course Sistine Chapel was stunning although hard to appreciate with noisy tourists packed like sardines in there. Managed to get a steely glare from Aimee when claiming I thought 'is this it?' when we walked in...oops! Exhausted and much in need of recharging in the form of gelato, we parted ways with Aim, Logan and Nat who were heading to South of Italy. Hunted down not only gelato but pizza aswell - apparently batteries were running on empty.... Next destination - Crypt of the Capuchins - where the skeletons of 4,000 monks are arranged in patterns to make the strangest, most interesting and intriguing artwork I have ever seen. Even the lanterns are made out if bones! Very eerie. After we'd been in there a while, the lady running the crypt came running along the corridor as some spoony Americans had their video camera out after we had been specifically told no cameras! She was saying how it was disrespecting the 4,000 monks and if the person didn't own up everyone had to leave. No-one said anything so everyone was ushered out until she saw the culprits, after which she gave them a stern telling off and we were all allowed back in. Still in need of more gelato for our daily fix, went back to an amazing store we had seen on our way for more, nom nom nom. Back to Camping Roma where we stocked up on antipasto goodies for dinner, after all the gelato and pizza there was no room for much else!
