Walking through Rome is like walking through a museum. The sights, the smells, the architecture, the beauty. I am slowly but surely learning my way, meeting new friends, and embracing all the Italian culture I can. Pictured above is a few friends in front of the Colosseum. It still does not seem like real life, the massive building is breath-taking and the history that lays within its wall incredible.

Being here is like being in a dream. Nothing seems real. The buildings, statues and art you have learned about for years comes alive while walking down the street, and no pictures will ever capture the amazing atmosphere.
