I just got back from Rome! It was really cool. We saw the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, and the Vatican Museums in the Vatican City. Thank God the Pope lived through his tracheotomy and didn't die while I was in the Vatican City, how much would that have sucked. I will post pictures sometime in the next two days. I didn't know that the Vatican City is actually it's own nation! That's cool. It only has 400-something permanent residents, mostly nuns. Hmm. Well, I have a presentation on Baldesar Castiglione's book The Book of the Courtier to make, so I will write more later. If anyone needs to know how to be a perfect court man or court lady, I could let you know.
