When In Rome Follow the yellow flag

Thursday afternoon we went down to the train station to get on the train to rome. They told us that we couldnt. So that was when the fun began.
We had to get like four separate trains and after leaving from bologna at 3 in the afternoon we got to rome at 1 in the morning. then we hired some dude in the street to drive us to the hotel. a 15 euro ride cost us like 40!!!
We slept on the floor next to Lynne and Steves bed. Then we headed out at 7 in the morning for the vatican where we walked through all the sites really really slow with many many gerries. We had to follow the yellow flag, which was our tour group. two of the oldies lost their way and we almost had to call the police to find them, steve ran out of the bus and tracked them down with his radar.
Later that day Lynne took us to the collosium and then we headed back to the hotel.
Later that night we ordered some pizza and enjoyed it in the hotel room. The next day was fun
We had quit a time finding a taxi and dan even lost his mind and started to shout, alot. well we finally found a taxi driver and didnt get in any fights or thrown in jail. but man, the italians suck when it comes to customer service.
we caught a train later that day to Lucca, but that is a different story.
