Tidbits of Rome

I haven’t posted in a few days, but that’s mostly because we haven’t done anything extremely interesting and I haven’t taken many pictures.

On Wednesday morning, we attended a Papal Audience with Pope Benedict XVI in the Paul VI Audience Hall. It wasn’t as much a religious ceremony like I had expected, but more of an informal while still very respectful event.

After we got back to campus on Wednesday, we found out the results for the photo scavenger hunt and while we didn’t win the contest overall, we did win “best photo” and free gelato thanks to this picture from the Pantheon:

Other than that, we’ve pretty much just been studying and enjoying Rome.

We went to Ottimo last night for dessert and by default ordered the incredible chocolate lava cakes:

Today we had plans to go with the school to Tivoli, but when we made it downstairs this morning we were greeted with the news that because of the snow (yes, snow) the trip was cancelled.

Instead our advisor, Domenico, took us all out to breakfast. I’d say that was worth waking up early for.

I’ve started posting my videos on my YouTube channel if you’re interested in watching! Most of them are just random bits and pieces of our days here, nothing too serious.

Ciao, Emily ❤
