Day 13

Today we had a jam-packed day. We woke up pretty early and boarded the bus. We arrived at the Vatican after a short bus ride. We were a little early, so we found us a spot in line. We waited for about an hour before we made it in. We had to pass through security and me and Ms. Wells got our bags taken away. It turned out to be a good thing when we didn't haven to carry them around. We entered the Vatican after that. We saw many amazing sights including St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, the Pope's gardens, and more. We also saw many sculptures that had been well preserved; they also had the only sculpture that had the original eye paintings on it. The Pope's gardens were amazing, but they lacked only one thing. The pope :/. We walked through the Sistine Chapel where there were many great sights and a lot of shushes from guards. We also talked to a "retired" Swiss Guard about his service along with other things. We had a good time, and I can't wait till tomorrow.
