Rome Sweet Home
Well, after a pleasantly uneventful journey, I arrived safely in Rome yesterday. I began unpacking my things and bought some groceries (at the grocery store across the street from St. Mary Major Basilica!). The story of my life thus far in Rome has been a constant battle to keep things dry! As I was unpacking, I realized that the majority of the clothes on the bottom of my big suitcase were damp and/or had wet spots all over them. Turns out my luggage was sitting in the rain for a little while in London. Then today it's been a pretty constant downpour since around noon, so almost everything in my backpack and the clothes I was wearing were pretty soaked. You know it's raining hard when the rain starts to come straight through a perfectly good umbrella!

On a lighter note, the owners of the apartment I am staying in have a cat and a dog, both of which are very friendly. I also have a roommate who is from Germany and will be staying in Italy for two weeks. This morning the cat came into our bedroom and woke us up, purring and cuddling. :) Here's a picture of her:
