I apologize if I'm throwing you off by switching tenses but I'm writing this on the bus into town.
I'm continueing this entry Sunday morning.
First, let me a apologize for the poorly written first part. I reread it and I realized that it sounds pretty bad but I decided to leave it in there cause I don't really want to rewrite it
We were able to help take care of the children Saturday afternoon and we took them out to a nearby park to play. Jorge and I started a pick up football (soccer) game with a couple kids from Switzerland, one from Dublin, one from Sacremento, and one from Milan. My team won of course, but what really impressed me was our ability to connect with the kids through football. That night during dinner we sat with a few guys from London, a guy from Cambridge, Mass., and a guy from California. The resteraunt that served us had given us meager portions for lunch and dinner was even more dissapointing. We were served last and begged for seconds. We sat there for a while in protest demanding seconds everytime the waiter went by. Eventually he told us that he couldn't do anything about seconds but gaveus a couple extra desserts to share. Two of the guys had left before dessert arrived but we convinced the waiter that they were coming back and split their parts along with an extra one that the waiter gave us in consalation for seconds. We honestly thought they weren't coming back but after we had finished they returned! After, we decided to go find the nearest pizzeria cause we were all still hungry. We found one around the corner and bought a box to split. Sunday we went to the respumtion of the Lord's Table in Rome then spent the afternoon talking to a couple guys from USC that are going to be in Malaga the same time as us so we planned to meet up there. We spent the rest pf the day trying to figure out a way by metro to Castel Gadolfo, the summer home of the Pope and home to the Vatican Observatory. We learned that there wasn't a way there via public transport so we decided to just grab dinner. We sat in a cafe near Termini eating pizza and listening to Call Me Maybe.
Well that's it for now, sorry if I bored you. Pictures will be up shortly.
