hey you guys

ok, so brad and i have been to: the forum (yeah, it's a whole lot bigger than i had anticipated...), trajan's market (there was a really cool sculptural exhibit there by mitoraj...), the colisseum, the vatican museum, the sistine chapel, saint peter's, the trevi fountain, the pantheon, piazza navona, the campidoglio, the palatine hill, lots of restaurants, the wedding cake/typewriter/monument thing called 'il vittoriano', the museum of the unification of italy, circus maximus, the temple of jupiter (maybe? as we're really not quite sure... we have a tendency to get really, really, really lost), teatro di marcello, the porta di ottavia, and we're on our way to the capitoline museums at the compidoglio....

so basically i don't really have a lot of time to write... more to come, i promise...
toodles.

The funny thing is that you will have to go back to all these places again once class starts. I hope you're taking pictures on these visits, because it's really hard to get good ones with 30 student sheep blocking you.

The temple of Jupiter is the really old nasty one over by circus maximus that hasn't been restored yet. it looks like the ghetto temple.

which ghetto temple... there are quite a few in that general area... is it the one on the sidewalk or the one across the street from the theater? i'm just confused....

yes, i have been taking lots of pictures, but i still need your map in order to find a place to get them developed...

argh.

i emailed the map to your gmail account several days ago. i don't know why you didn't get it. i'll try again tonight.

Okay, I'm not sure how to do your comment thing...it doesn't appear to work quite like Chris's, but tis me Y-MA!

One of those ghetto temples is jupiter and another of those ghetto temples is to zeus (the round one i think), if my memory serves me correctly. And you must go visit Castle Sant'Angelo!!! I, too, am extremely jealous. Enjoy yourself chicky - you've earned this moment in time. :)
