Roma

I’m heeeere :)

Three hours later than I was supposed to be – delays, delays, YUCK – but I’m here in La Citta Eterna. Everything’s old, dirty-ish, and absolutely amazing ! I’ve only walked around the area the close to the UW Rome Center but it choc-a-bloc with architectural wonders, pizza stalls, and little cobblestone alleys.

On the taxi ride from the airport a colossal monument caught my eye. I asked the taxi driver what it was and he just mumbled something about an old, dead king. Of course. Then he said, “It’s quite new. Only 100 years ago”. There you go. Old, amazing!

Every thing may be ancient, but it’s all brand new to me! Which is equally exciting and intimidating (okay, well… maybe a little more intimidating right now :P) but I’m on my way to a great big adventure :D I’m gonna get lost a lot… the streets are a maze of traffic (both of compact cars and people!) that just kinda bleed into each other in every which direction. I can’t wait till I know it all like the back of my hand :)

Can’t help but miss home, miss Seattle. I think being away always makes me think about home… it just gets a little confusing when I’m not sure which home I’m missing ;) Know that I’m thinking of all of you. Much love.
