When we got to
I think after that we must have gone wandering for a little bit, it couldn’t have possibly taken us two hours to write down how much hostels were costing us…maybe we even got back to Archi Rossi closer to 1500h. Either way, we finally got to our room and met our roomie Rebecca. The three of us have decided that Rebecca was a very special person. She was maybe 27 and an Aussie with boyfriends in pretty much every country. Every single day we were there she was supposed to be checking out, and every single day we were out of our room by 9, and when we came back around 3, she was almost always in bed. She was a sweet girl, I guess. Just didn’t seem to be doing anything at all with her life. She studied art history in school and was hoping for a job restoring art somewhere so that she could hang out in the city for even longer. The thing that got us the most was how much she talked. Oh. My. Gosh.
She talked so much. One day we came back from walking who knows where and were all laying on our beds trying to sleep or at least be quiet, and she just kept talking to us about her dates and boys and how our other roommates were such good guys.
[Oh, forgot to mention that in order to save moolah in
So our first full day in
The Cathedral, where we ended up going, is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. I can’t for the life of me remember any of the back story to the building itself, except for it kept on being built, and construction was restarted…and then something about the church being without a façade for a super long time, but it finally got one in like the 17 or 1800s, so really the church as we know it is incredibly modern. But it is still breathtaking. I think we walked past it at least once a day and every single time we did all three of us had to stop and just stare at it for at least five or six minutes.
