Again - just a quickie, but thought Rome was worthy of a three things Thursday.
1- While the "Italian Roast" coffee I find at home has never been my favourite, the coffee here has been amazing. A perfect cappuccino every morning for 0.70 (sometimes 1.00 euro...depends on how happy the coffee bar man is). I'm not looking forward to paying many times more for coffee once I get home.
2 - Even though it is old and dirty and doesn't always make sense, Rome is beautiful.
3 - No matter what your religious beliefs I think it would be hard not to be awed by the Vatican.
