|The Pantheon! Note the insane amount of tourists.|

All in all, it was quite the adventure, and I got to see a new part of Rome. Not all of Rome is bustling like the tourist areas. Now I truly understand some of the jokes about Italy’s ridiculous work week as it relates to the economic crisis. Long work days, easy shopping, and regular accessibility to shops and businesses simply aren’t part of the culture here. As I learn more about Italy and it’s culture, I’ll be sure to think back to this day to remember how interactions between cultures and international economics blend.
