Rome, Italy

Jen was in search of “the most beautiful Mc Donald’s in the world” which was near the Trevi Fountain.  Turns out it was recently remodeled to make it look more modern.
By 2pm, we were on a train to Sorrento. This guy on the train (right side) was a crack up.  He was sitting across from me, practicing his “Blue Steel” pose while taking pictures of himself with his camera phone.  He asked me where I was from, and when I told him USA, his next question was who my favorite wrestler was.  His is Chupacabra, the Mexican werewolf.  He started telling me about how he is in a band, and they played some Beatles songs for us. German trains are so quiet you can hear a pin drop. Italian trains are loud, strangers are sharing food with each other, singing songs, laughing, and talking with their arms flailing around.
We took a cheap flight ($100 euro) from Vienna to Rome to close the loop of our trip.  We were in Rome for just a day, so there are many other sites we didn’t bother to see.  This is St. Peter’s Basilica.  There were several girls getting turned away because their shoulders were not covered.  Inside the church however, were half naked girls with a see though shawl covering their shoulders.  
A quick stop on the metro, and now we are at the Spanish steps.
