I miei Amici,

Its been a hectic couple of days. With Euro cup getting crazy and seeing Tom Hanks on the street of Rome filming Angels and Demons there has yet to be a dull moment. Since I only have 10 more minutes on this computer I'll make this quick.

After traveling 30 plus hours i finally made it into Rome. So my next step was to find my hostel which by the way is in the china town district of rome (GT your peeps we're everywhere). Well, after unloading my stuff at the hostel I starting walking toward the colisseum but got easily side tracked and ended up at the trevi fountain. Which if you don't know rome its like the complete other direction than the colisseum.


After checking this cool fountain out I crossed a couple of streets and stopped by the Pantheon, you know just cause


This buliding is absouletlely massive and in unbelievable condition...one of the coolest I would say. After the pantheon i walked around some more and found a bar where I watched the uro cup games, drank many a bears and somehow made best friends with the bar owner. Im not sure what exactly happened...when I finally figured out that I havent slept yet, was 4 beers in and hadn't eaten dinner yet I decided to call it a night.

Today I hopped on a train from Rome to Napoli and then from Napoli to Sorrento. Check out the pictures below.



Tomorrow Im heading out to the island of Capri, then Friday over to the Amalfi coast and end with Pompeii on Saturday.

I hope everyone is doing well back in the states. Talk to you guys soon

Awesome pics brosif! I'm confused though, why the shirt all of a sudden? By the way, the Dead Fish will be clashing with the #1 seed tonight at The Wave House...your memory and spirit will live on as we take these fools down! Don't worry though, I'm making a life size cutout of the photo below to bring for intimidation...Kelly Kapowski Style!

Cool pics Diego. The Pantheon is sick especially how its just placed in the middle of the street/plaza with buildings all around it. You just turn a corner and there it is. Have fun be safe and dont be dumb

I am not shocked that your first stop was to a fountain where there was a statue of a big naked guy...not shocked at all.
