We spent today exploring the ruins of Pompeii. I had no idea how large the city was! I was worried that we'd have trouble filling the 4 hours we had to spend there, but it turned out that we actually had to skip a few important parts and probably only saw between one third and one half of the ruins. We also saw basketball great David Robinson! He was super tall. We just ate dinner near the Pantheon, and are about to take a night walk to the Spanish Steps. We haven't really spent a lot of time in Rome yet, so hopefully we'll start to get a feel for more areas of the city that we haven't seen. Tomorrow we're going to the Vatican and more sight seeing around Rome. We'll update more tomorrow!
