Today all of us had a very long sleep in, because my mom was jetlagged, and the rest of us needed a little catch up of our own. Hannah and I woke up first, but soon after we heard my parents thundering like elephants coming down the stairs. To our horror we found out that our shower didn't work, so for now we had to settle for baths in the upstairs bathroom, instead of the classy shower stall downstairs. The night before there had been a lot of thunder and rain, and it was still raining buckets in the morning. My mom then showered Hannah and I with gifts of socks, makeup remover and....Kraft Dinner!! Hannah and I then went out to get a couple groceries. Our parents were quite proud that we found the grocery store by ourselves in a place we had never been to...and to be honest, I'm quite proud of us too. Then we came home and made our macaroni and some soup for my parents (they also shared some of my mom's leftover airplane food). The weather had started to act up again (rain, then hail, then rain, then sun, then rain...) so we decided to make it an indoor day reserved for doing laundry and writing blogs (like this one!). Tomorrow we plan to get out even though the weather is not supposed to be that good, but we'll brave it anyways to see some sights of Rome.
