My sister with a horse
A flower we saw on our way back
After that, my dad picked us up and we went home to get ready for our trip!
We drove to Chicago and got onto our plane. At first it was fine, until it was time to sleep. These baby's in the back just wouldn't stop crying, and people kept talking. There were some TV's on the ceiling and the light they made was really bright. About nine hours later, we finally landed. I hadn't slept at all. We had to catch a taxi from the airport in Rome and drive to a train station. Thankfully our taxi driver was fast (probably way past the speed limit), but we got to the station about 10 minutes before our train left. We had to get out and run with our luggage even though we were exhausted, and show our tickets to people trying to understand where we had to go. Since we can't speak Italian, it was much harder to get directions. We finally made onto the train just 2 minutes before it left.
I managed to sleep for about a half hour, but then we arrived at Bologna and walked to our hotel. We manegded to stay awake until around eight thirty, and then slept to eleven the next day.
When we finally did wake up today, it was already around lunch time. We crawled out of bed and got some amazing pizza from a stand nearby.
We're mainly here to see some movies from an anual film festival here where they restore movies that are 100 years old! For some movies, the set up a huge screen outdoors in a square a few minutes from our hotel. We have seen a few movies and eaten lots of great food.
I'm writing this from a cafe just outside our hotel. See you next week!
