Church day

Aviva was really psyched for today. We saw the tomb of Julius II in the Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli (St. Peter's in Chains); Michelangelo never finished it, and so Julius II is actually interred in an unmarked grave in St. Peter's Basilica (Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to do the Sistine Chapel and main wall; if you want to read more about their fiery relationship, check out The Agony and the Ecstacy: a Novel of Michelangelo, which Aviva finished while we were in Italia). The centerpiece of the tomb is a seated statue of Moses. We had to walk all over to find a taxi, from Travestere to Piazza Navoro. We saw St. John's Basilica, the official church of Roma and the world. We saw the Church of the Holy Steps but didn't go in (they claim to have a stairway made from wood that Christ walked upon, so people climb the steps on their knees).

We decided to have dinner for lunch from now on – we just can't wait until 7:00 or 8:00PM to have a good, big meal; today I had a great steak for lunch at Ristorante Galeassi.

Aviva came down with a cold today, which dampened our spirits a little.
