A Quick Time in Italy

We saw the wonderful wonderful ruins.  The driving was sincerely crazy. It was so crazy that everyone in Rome has to hang onto the handles because of the crazy driving.  We saw a beautiful site.  We went into the Colosseum, we had Pizza where it was invented, we climbed the leaning tower of Pisa (aka mistake Pizza). 

We walked through Pompeii where all of the buildings were damaged by the volcano that erupt.  We saw dead bodies that turned to stone.  People looked at them saying: "Wow! Is this a dead body or a statue?"
We saw a picture of a dog on the floor it was called a mosaic.  People wondered how did they even get that dog on there?  I guess it is 4000 years old.

We went inside the Sistine Chapel.  It was beautiful.  I saw Adam touching God.  It was so beautiful.  Some people they were talking about the guy that wants to cover up Michelangelo's artwork. The guy that wants to cover it up because he is an idiot and he is afraid of seeing naked bodies and sex. 
My favorite thing I saw in the Vatican was a great painting that I really liked.  It was a painting of Adam and Eve. 

We climbed inside the leaning tower of Pisa.  It was leaning both ways, the left and the right the left and the right.  When we got to the top we saw everything below. 

We went into the Michelangelo museum of unfinished Michelangelo artwork where Michelangelo did not finish his sculptures.  One was finished and it was called "The David".  His head was as big as a boulder.  His eyes were as big as baby bluebird's eggs and his feet were the size of god. 

We are now in Spain.
