Vatican Museum

Today we left the hotel around 8 and headed to the Vatican.  Where we went to the museum which is actually like 11 or more museums.  We didn’t do all of them because of the time.  It would have taken days. We went into the Sistine Chapel but you cannot take pictures there.  It was amazing.  We then went to St Peter’s where the Concert Chorus will be singing in on Saturday.  The place was packed.  David and I just had to get out.  I figured while they are rehearsing and doing their sound check I can take photos then.  After that we had a short time to go to the restroom or to the shop before we left for the town center.  We had a meeting place and when we started walking to the bus winding this way and that way. Then down to underground parking we notice that our friends were not on the bus.  Their was actually 5 people not on the bus and one of them was one of the camera crew who was doing a documentary on our trip.  We kept telling the tour guide people were missing.  They tried to find them but said they had to get moving.  When we were almost where we were going Roland got a phone call.  They trying to get a taxi and wanted to know where to meet us.  The guide told them the name of the restaurant, but that wasn’t enough.  They wanted the address, so while they were trying to get that information I guess one taxi driver got pissed off at them and said they could not ride with them.  Finally, they got a taxi driver to take them to our meet up place.  While Janet, David and I are waiting for our lost friends the camera man shows up that was with them.  We ask where the rest are and he says around the corner on the next block.  We hurry to go try to find them.  There they are sitting at a table getting ready to order food.  We tell them we have been waiting for them.  At least, they were ok.  We then got a table and sat down to eat some lunch too.  I am sitting across from Janet who all of a sudden says, “OH, CRAP!”.  She brushes something off her arm which then lands on my arm.  She was not kidding about the crap.  A pigeon shit on her and she flung it on me, so we both got crapped on at lunch.  After lunch we went to the Spanish Steps, visited a couple more churches, sat by a fountain and visited with some very nice nuns.  We headed back to where we started for dinner and then back to the hotel.  It was a long day but lots of fun.  I am putting some of the pictures up now but you will have to wait for rest when I have more time to explain what is in the photos.  Ready for bed now.
