It’s day one in Rome and for now, I can say it’s a pretty amazing city. I can’t believe that there are structures here that have been around for the last couple of thousand years. For a modern city though, it pretty much sucks, the roads are bad, the streets aren’t clean and no one seems to be very tourist friendly but I guess with structures like the Colosseum, you can slack off on the other things 😛
Our trip started with SQ366 straight to Rome, it was a lovely flight, watched Vantage Point and Horton Hears a Who!, slept for about 6hours and arrived in Rome at 7am. Waited for the transfer coz it was caught in traffic, the ride back into the city was just as bad. By the time we checked in, we were ready for breakfast again. After we settled in, my parents and I walked around, scouted the area and found the main Termini Station. It is hot in Rome during Summer, I like it though 🙂
I also like that unlike Singapore, Rome doesn’t have crazy cold airconditioning in the shops, so I don’t feel like I’m going in and out of extremities. After lunch, it was back to the hotel for a nap and then off to a walk to collect tickets to see the Pope tomorrow. We walked some more and came to the Trevi Fountain.
It’s quite something, huh? The whole area had a cool serene feel about it. My parents and I hung out there for a bit before it was time for dinner.
Now I’m in bed all ready for Vatican city tomorrow. Till then, sweet dreams everyone 🙂
