Well, made it to Rome at like 9 last night and was about to go to the hotel reservation office when a guy handed me a card for a nearby hostel. I decided what the heck, may as well try it... so anyway, they didn't have any open shared rooms so I had to get my own room for 50 Euros. It was really nice to have my own room for a change, even my own bathroom, and low and behold, a TOWEL! But that is too much to pay again tonight. I have a convent reserved for 3 days right by the Spanish steps, it costs 35 € a night so it is too expensive too but whatever. Today I don't know what all I will see but I know it will be good. For some reason I was a little depressed last night, maybe its just loneliness...

Pray!
Isn't there a patron saint of cheap hostels? I'll look into that for you.

Rome, sweet home
How awesome! Isn't it a marvel to stand in the colosseum? Do try to see the statue of Marcus Aurelius on horseback- it's like their tomb of the unknown soldier. It's really cool. You know I love Marcus's saying, 'Vex not thy spirit..'! It's (the statue, not the saying)on the back side of something else, but I forget what. It may be near the Spanish steps. Good luck! Be sure to use your Green Book so you don't miss anything!
