Turns out our GPS is an a--hole. It took us through the university and left us stranded on the side of a busy road. NO WHERE close to our hotel at all.
When I realized that our GPS had glitched out and led us in the opposite direction to a nonexistant address, I lost it. We saw some signs for a nearby hotel, so we figured we'd go there and ask for a cab. The signs led us to a busy intersection but no hotel. Luckily Will spotted a cab randomly on the road and he flagged it down. Turns out, it would have been almost 5 miles away. Ugh.
When we finally got to our hotel/B&B type place, we left our bags and walked a few blocks to Vatican City. Yeah, you read right...just a short walk to Vatican City from our place. It was a steal too!

We weren't planning on actually doing any real sightseeing so we just walked around the area, taking in the amazingness.
I was too chicken to give the guy money so I made Mama do it. We thought he was going move and scare her. Instead he blew here kisses and motioned for her to come over and take a picture with him.

When we looped around back to St Peter's Square the sun was setting and we got some awesome night shots.
