Day 7, TTEE 2008.  Rome - Florence (Calenzano)
Goodbye to the lovely Aran Park Hotel, and goodbye to Roma.  We are on the bus early today, 7.15am.  Heading to the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel.  Here is there Michelangelo painted the roof.  After this drive we head to Florence for the evening.
That was just amazing.  We have just been through the chapel and museum.  But even before we lined up I had an accident.  I was taking photos and as I turned around I went smack bang into a metal railing, knocking my head.  I had to sit with ice on my head until the spots disappeared.  Not a good feeling especially in this heat.
Now back to the museum and chapel.  The tapestries, the paintings the artifacts in the museum were all but the best thing was the chapel for sure. This is where Michelangelo painted the 7 days of creation of the roof, on the wall at the back as you walk in was the judgment and as you walk from this painting to the back of the chapel you have different events on the lives of Moses and Jesus Christ on either side of you.  These painting seem so real, like you are actually a part of the painting itself.  No photos allowed in the chapel and crowd kept getting sushed by the guards because you are supposed to be silent in the Chapel itself.
Just amazing.
Gerry has just come and spoken to me about the rooming arrangements.  Apparently two of the ladies who booked twin share, the same as me, and have been rooming together are getting on each others nerves and have to be separated.  No now it looks like I have to share for the next 5 nights.  Not sure how I feel about this after being on my own for the last 6 nights.  But will see how it goes tonight.
I am not feeling too good though.  Every time I close my eyes to sleep I fell like I am going to vomit.  I did actually vomit a little after I ate lunch.  Have a very very very big headache and I just want to sleep, and get a Mummy hug.
So we just had 2 hours free time in Firenze (Florence).  So pretty here, I like it, better than Rome.  I did some shopping, got my leather goods but this day needs to be over for me, I just want to relax some.  Typical the day I hit my head, and am not feeling well I have to share but that is ok, I can deal.
You know you love me
