As the title suggests, I’m back home again. And the honeymoon period was short-lived. I did get the homecooked meal I had requested when I came home (Hamburger Helper with green peas and biscuits…mmm), but that was about all the special treatment two months away from home warranted in my case. I was kind of hoping I might get a homecooked meal and be treated to a pedicure, but no such luck. Now that the cut on my foot from Rome has heeled I will be treating myself to a pedicure; I deserve it.

We have finally arrived at our final destination…Rome. Today is our last full day of the official backpacking portion of the trip, and tomorrow Kelly and I will be flying to London. We have today planned out nicely in honor of our last day. During this trip, all of us have been reading Dan Brown books as we go. Kerry brought The DaVinci Code with her, and over the course of a few weeks we’ve all read it. Kelly then bought Dan Brown’s other 3 books and we’ve been circulating those as well. The best of all the books, however, is Angels and Demons, which takes place right here in Rome. I had seen on the news ages ago that people have been capitalizing on the success of the book by offering various “Angels and Demons” and “Illuminati” tours. Kelly and I had planned on taking one today until we found out that they start at 49 euros and head up from there. So, today we are taking ourselves on our very own “Ghetto Fabulous Dan Brown Book Tour,” which basically involves us walking to each place that was in the book and taking pictures with a little ghetto fabulous piece of paper. It is quite exciting.
