when in rome.....

sunny 40 °C

hello all my loyal readers... (mom and dad....and lindsey)..ha...anyway, i find myself in an internet cafe just outside of the prima porta train station on my way to our campsite which is 1 mile north of here... there are some dark guys talkin in the phone booths yelling their faces of on the phone.. quite possibly a drug deal gone wrong, or maybe they are getting shit for selling fake louis vitton stuff, as well as dolce and gabbana....... anyways the campsite is unreal, for 11 euros we get free access to a pool, live entertainment every night, and a toga party every night... pretty awesome... except we sleep in a barn.... not so awesome.. at least it cools off at night...... can you believe that it was plus 40 today in roma... and right now as i speak at 9 oclock in the envening it is plus 33 and laura and i jus finished walking rome.... we saw the great vatican city first of all, it was awesome.. we went on a tour for 20 euros, we thought that this would be one place where it would be worth it to get a guide, and it worked out well... no lines , the british guide called them cues... i always thought of playing pool, because isnt that a cue????? hmm... st peters basillica was astounding, unfortunately laura got shut down at the door because her shorts were jus a little too short.... who wears short shorts... luara wears short shorts... ha.. we both got into the sistene chapel to see micheleangelos work, it was top notch stuff..... i always thought he laid on his bakc while he painted but turns out he stood with his neck bent up the entire time... 4 years to be exact.... 4 years of standing looking at a giant ceiling... tuff one.... but it was cool, i sure got a good history lesson today at the vatican city... then we strolled off to the colliseum and the roman ruins... its crazy to imagine this place 500 years ago.... pretty fascinating stuff.... as for tonight i am most likely to tie one on, buckets of beers are on sale at our resort .. .i mean campsite which feels liek a resort.... then lay beside the pool till 4 ish then we are off to tonys uncles restaurant for supper then to some fountain and gelato.... i wish you all could be here, cause it would rock... laura and i are having a blast, she is a barrel a laughs, and we both love this travelling gig.... almost 3 weeks done already.. wow..... i miss sports highlights, and hdtv... thats all for now.... we leave to naples on sunday, the place where they invented pizza, and som eof the best seafood in europe... cant wait..... then we off to greece!! which we are both very excited.... the food here in italy is definetly a step up from our shitty ass food in spain.... today i had lasagna for 5 euros... the bad news is the service fee 15% which is included plus a drink 3 euros... so it makes it sound like your getting a deal but you aint... your payin 10 euros no matter what... bullshit!!! ok... thanks for reading and ill update in naples...... hope your enjoying the weather in saskatchewan and at the lake!
