... we had planned a Vatican day but as we get to the Vatican museum the queue to get in deters us. I ask Hinesh if he wants to see the Sistine Chapel but he isn’t fussed. He thinks he won’t appreciate the artwork. Fair enough, one queue saved. Over to St Peters we go. I read that the pope does a weekly papal address and that its on a Wednesday (tomorrow).

Unfortunately we couldn't go underground as you have to book 3 weeks ahead! Here Evi and Manne and the boys left us ...
... were alot of people on the boat we couldnt believe it. They were setting up beds everyone, on the floor and staircases. Surprisingly we slept ok. It was funny when we woke up we were not sure what to expect to see with all the people sleeping on the floor. To our surprise they were gone, there was a stop overnight which we didnt realize.
