First day in Rome

Today at around 2pm we arrived in Rome after a very long travelling period. We hit the ground running and immediately left for the hotel, where after a couple of minutes to freshen up, we left for the colosseum and the forum. When we arrived there was a quick lecture given to the boys by professors W. Naayen and J. Hare.

We saw many interesting sights in the Colosseum and the forum while also learning about the interesting history of the colosseum. This included one quote fom our great local guide Carlotta that will stay with us for the rest of the trip: “Rome is like a lasagne.”

By the time we got to dinner we were a bad combination of hungry and exhausted however after a big meal, everyone is going to bed light hearted and hopefully fresh for another big day for tomorrow.
