Today we toured Rome by bus and Metropolitana, the Roman subway. Both were, as usual, very crowded and the pick pockets were at their best! But nothing was taken from us! First, we went to the Vatican, to St. Peter, where we met Mr. O'Connor again. This morning he had a private audience with the Pope (sorry, no pictures of this event)
