Rome: July 5

July 5
Happy Birthday Jackson!
Today was our free day and we decided to spend it at the beach in Nettuno. I wish I had pictures to show you of such a blessed event, but unfortunately we never made it there. After missing three trains (that's right- we managed to miss THREE), we called it quits. Problem #1: We do not speak Italian, and apparently they reserve the right to switch your platfor at the last second, which they kindly announce over in intercome in their native tongue. Problem #2: Apparently weekends have a different schedule and don't match up to the departure board.

Watching the train leave... One minute too late.

SO depressed

Anyway, we're mildly convinced that God didn't want us to go, or at least that is what we have been telling oursleves to feel better about completel.y wasting one of our free days in a train station. When we got back to the hotel (after missing our shuttle- don't even worry), we jumped into the pool for an hour (where they force you to wear a blue cap). I saw a lot of skin, if you know what i mean. Oh and hair. Haha... yikes.
