I suck at this

Clearly. I also dont have punctuation right now because Im on an Italian keyboard that is either faded or wrong. In my defense, my personal journal is 100% up to date, which means I at least have a little tiny win. It SO counts. So, Ive been a lot of places now, Ostia was amazing I went to the beach! The Med is quite the Sea, it was like harsh warm. We ended up on a private beach, it cost like 6 euro to get in, but it was completely worth it, the beach was clean and warm and the drinks were so European... we flirted with the bartender and we were talking about rum, I was all, Grande, no picollo. And he was all, tell me when.
So European.
Some new people moved into the chalets besides us, I dont think theyre the beer ball type though, sad really, I was rocking that. I seriously havent drank aside from those two times, Its expensive and I already feel like Im about to die, no need to accentuate the feeling.
Everything is so overwhelming, I feel like I havent even scratched the surface of the subject matter, and I also feel like sleeping all. The. Time. Seriously, who gets sick on the weekends?
I went to the Vatican for church this morning, all devout and such. The Pope is apparently in Ireland, good for Ireland. Really though, Im tired. And now Im rambling with part of the main point being getting my full hour of free 'sorry the wifi isn't working' campground internet. They blame the weather which is... strange at best. Today there was a literal torrential downpour for three minutes after being completely sunny and hot the entire day. I hope there isn't a thunderstorm tonight, It's so loud and shaky in our chalet, I'd be scared to death.
I kind of just want to ditch the schooly bits and head for the beach...

Wal Mart Italia

I have seen and done so much, however, there is a special place in my heart for Panarama. We literally walked in and one of my friends was like "I smell fruit, and.... tires?" we looked to the left, there was fruit. To the right, tires. This place, is fantastic.
So far, I have made a weeks worth of sauce for $50- that's lunches AND dinners, gotten the cheapest red bull ever, bought heaps of boccocini and SIX PEACHES FOR NINETY NINE CENTS!
I love this place!
My sore throat situation is getting slightly better, and I'm at least talking now. I think it's a byproduct of the second smoke, so many people on the tour do it. I'm so tired though, must sleep!

Ciao Roma!

Hi Everyone :)
So I'm officially in Rome, sitting by the pool and getting tanned as we speak! Fantastic ain't it?
The flight was a flight, I just read the guidebook- Rough Guide to Rome if anyone's curious. Between that, David Copperfield, and napping I almost didn't have time for the fabulous Mr. Janson- Don't worry, I was a total academic and made sure to do the readings. I was SO worried about customs, but it was the easiest thing ever. The guy just winked at me- and that guy can wink at me ANY day if you know what I'm sayin'.
We headed from the airport to our campsite, it's so fantastic. Like I said, there's a pool- which is SO necessary. I don't know the exact temperature, but we did 9.2 kilometers of walking today and let me tell you, I pretty much sweat through my clothing, which in my twisted logic gives me total permission to pig out on carbonera tonight.
One of the coolest things here is the market across the street, it's like the wal mart of Italy and is completely insane and completely cheap. A buggy FULL of stuff only cost 54 euro. The most expensive thing is sunscreen.
The walking tour today was, like I said, long and sweaty but full of so much good stuff. I can't wait to explore it all in depth!
