Italy: Steez & History
Rome is a conglomerate of extensive history, architecture, and style. I met my friends Puff and Maxx there. From Rome we took the train north to Cinque Terre and then east to Pisa and Florence.
Sunlight shining through the oculus of the Pantheon lit the wall.
The colossal Colosseum.
Batteries not included: Trevi Fountain.
Puff, Maxx, and I drank and drew on a piece of paper at a bar. Before we left, we added our paper to an evergrowing lampshade above one of the tables.
St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City: It's a big church.
Pillars at the Vatican City entrance.
The first construction of the Castel Sant'Angelo was completed in 139 AD.
Torre Argentina is a cat sanctuary where stray cats are fed by volunteers. In 44 BC, Julius Caesar was stabbed here.
Cinque Terre is easily one of the most gorgeous places I've seen. It's composed of five small villages, connected by trains and trails, along the west coast of northern Italy.
Three badasses who hiked the trails along the coast of Cinque Terre.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is always erect but anticlimactic.
In Florence, Puff gravitated down one particular street. His gravitation led us to 8 x 8, an exhibit of eight rooms designed by eight design companies.
