This semester I am taking a Roman archaeology class, and today's lecture only had me dreaming of my days in Rome (I studied abroad in Florence last summer with a four-day opening tour in Rome.) I miss it so much! When the professor showed a photo of the Stadium of Domitian on the PowerPoint, I could almost taste the nutella and strawberry gelato I had near Piazza Navona.

We discussed The Colosseum earlier this week...
|I met an Italian who said "I live that way, near the Colosseum" like it was no big deal|
We talked about The Pantheon too!

The Vatican is gorgeous! It was cool to see some of the art in the book that I saw in the museum.
|I took this photo of The Vatican from far away at this other castle! What wonders a zoom lense can do|
I am so nostalgic right now. I miss Italy so much! I so, totally, completely, hope I am fortunate enough to go back and visit.
But for now, my Roman archaeology class will just have to suffice!
