Rome Day 3: We saw the POPE!

So today was the best day so far! We started off at the Spanish Steps in Roma. Right next to the Spanish Steps are all my best friends. Louis, Prada, Burberry, Max Mara, Cartier etc. I BEGGED snugs to buy me a Prada bag but he shot that down pretty quick.....


The Louis Store had really cool steps. Those Green places with prices were constantly changing.

Everyone in Italy has the teeniest tiniest cars. They are so cute. I think its neat that no one over here buys a car for any other reason that practicality. There are no SUVS and no spinners, just really efficient , Environmentally friendly small cars! They also park all over the place with no rhyme or reason and all of them have several dents and scrapes to show for it.
Now this was the coolest thing we have seen since we've been here. Its called the "Church of Bones"
Its hard to believe that something like this really even exists. It is a church completely decorated in human BONES. See pics. Very intricate designs all made with hip bones or skulls etc.Crazy! Click that link above if you want more info.
This is my super cool purchase of the day. A nylon styled motorcylce jacket which just happens to be RAIN proof and have a hood!

Then something crazy happened. Tonight when we were walking home from dinner our whole block was roped off and Police were everywhere so we were super confused and maybe a little worried. As we walked towards the crowds (because they were chanting) we realized the POPE was about to make an appearance. Totally cool. They go nuts for this guy over here. Climbing the walls and scafolding. It was a really neat site watching them carry him in on some cart thingy and singing and all.

OMG! I hate to say it, but I am jealous. KP and I have started a Italy savings plan already for when I graduate. I would love to see some night club pics!

Dave and I are totally buying a smart car .... soon!! They are so awesome and we'd only have to buy $4 gas once every two months. :) Hooray for capitalism.
