Today was our very last day in Europe. It is about 11:30 pm here and we still have to finish packing, so this will probably be a quick post.
Yesterday we tied all of our loose ends in Rome and visited all the attractions we missed on the first few days. This meant going to the Trevi Fountain, Circus Maximus (where the chariot races were held) and the Vatican Museum, including the Sistine Chapel. We also visited ...
... light around 10pm. Slept all the way through to 6am. Florence stop was 5am so I had the room to myself. Stretched out naked. Pretty nice. I arrived in Rome at 9am. Met Salama outside the train station.

Though we had to go up 4 floors with our bags, once we arrived they gave us a key for the elevator, which was amazing!! =) The sheets are clean and the matresses too. The shower is great, nice warm water and the room is heated. Very recommendable, though the blankets should be washed.
