Day 13 The Vatican!!

Today we got up really early to go stand in line to see the Vatican. We have been in 3 countries in the past 2 weeks. The Vatican was an amazing place! So many paintings and famous sculptures. It was such an overwhelming feeling to be in there. After we saw the Vatican we went and talked to a Roman Catholic Priest. He explained the Vatican and the Roman Catholic religion to us. After we left the church, we went to Saint Peter's Basilica where we saw a statute of St. Peter and the Swiss guards. Then we actually got to talk to a former Swiss guard. He showed us the changing of the Swiss guards. This was a really cool thing to see; that was my favorite part of today. The Sistine Chapel was really awesome. This building is older than America itself. It was absolutely amazing. I can't even believe I saw that today!
