Bonjourno!

So where did I leave offf.... the day after the walking tour, which I believe was Thursday we went on 2 company visits. Saatchi and Saatchi and SKIN leather. Bot  h visits wree a lot of fun and very interesting. Saatchi and Saatchi is an advertising firm and the guy who spoke to us was so passionate about his work and talked about love a lot., Which was very different than the US. Skin leather is a huge leather manufacturer and the owner and founder of the company talked to us. He ended his presentation by having us model leather jackets up and down a run way. So we did, and we awere all models for a day. It was a lot of fun! That night when we got back we were all pretty tired so we went to sleep by 10. Friday morning we had to be downstairs by 730 i believeto leave for Johnson and Johnson medical. The presentation was very interesting but not as much fun as the other two. They did however provide us with beverages and a small lunch. That night when we returned back to the hotel we went to Vacticin city once again becauseb we hdad8:00 tickets to see the Sistine Chapel. ME & Rachel walked around and shopped for a bit. The sshops are really cool here and theres a million of them (perfect for me huh?) Then we went to the sistine chapel and it was absolutley amazing. I can't believe I was actually there. The internet is very slow here so I am having a hard time typing this blog up everyday. Like right now I am sitting in the hallway of my hotel because I get no signal in my roo. It was not like this as much in Rome. BUT anyways after the Sistine chapel we all came back and got ready to go out.We were supposed to go out to one or Rome top night clubs because it was our last night in Rome but we actually went to a night club that had about 10 people in it besides our group of around 10. There were a lot of old italian men and couples. Apparently it was 80s night and we got into some type of VIP area and danced the night way. It was actually a ton of fun. I lovve that everyone on this trip has gotten really close already and its only the 5th day. We have made a small little group that we do everything with. So we did not get home till 3 am and we had to be up at around 6 to get ready, pack, and leave for Fiorenze (FLORENCE). Good thing it was a 4 hour bus ride so I was able to sleep on it thats all I have to say. We got tour roommate assignments on the bus and there is an odd number of girls so every hotel one girl gets a single and that happened to be me! I like it but I would rather have someone to taolk to Being in the room by myself has its advantages but it also has its disadvantagees like being homesick and allowing me to cry without anyone knowing. Yes, I have cried already haha I just really am not good at being away from home and when I think that I still have so many days left it makes me nervous! But anyways at 2:30 we went on a walking tour of Florence with another crazy tour guide this time she was crazy because I dont think she was even speaking much english nor do I think she knew where she was tkaing us. Me and Lance really have just been walking down and also e ditched the tour around 4 and went to have some luunch, I had a caprese salad it was sooo good. Then since then I have just been walking around and using the internet because it is pretty cheap here (i wonder why because it SUCKS) but we have a ree day tomorrow so I am going to rest up and get a full nights rest because it seriously has taken me this long to get adjusted, I still feel a little off. Oh I Forgot to write about mine and Rachels experience tonight. We were both hungry and hadnt eaten dinner yet so we started walking around and we ran across a McDonalds. We didnt want to eat any american food while we were here but it looked really good so we thought wed try it out. WELL lets just say its not your everyday awesome mcdonalds. I had to pay 20 cents to get KETCHUP! they didnt have oney mustrad and get this their FRIES didnt taste good! Its so crazy how we are so used to things that even mcdonadls tastes different over seas OK well its time to go and I will try to upload pictures but like I said this internet is awful! I love and   miss you all!
CIAO!

Lauren has told me to extend her apologies for the bad grammar and spelling, her internet and computer access has made it difficult to type.

I love you lauren! sounds like you're having a ton of fun :)
