Hello Rome! So this morning we had to get up at 4 a.m. Tara and I didn't get much sleep last night because we were up until 12:30 working on assignments, so we were pretty exhausted at the start of our journey. We drove on a double decker bus for four hours on our way to Rome. Our first stop was Vatican city. We had a three-hour guided tour of the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. My favorite part of the Sistine Chapel was seeing the spark of life where God was reaching out to give Adam his "sparkle," as our tour guide put it. We also saw the School of Athens painting and Perugino's Christ Handing Over the Keys. Saint Peter's Basilica was huge and gorgeous. Our tour guide told us, however, that it is no longer the largest church because there was just one recently built in Africa that tops its size!
