Part II: Rome

Next on our trip was Rome! We were only there for three days, but with the help of a bus tour managed to see most of the sights. 

I think my favorite memory was the night we decided to go to the Trevi fountain. We were right next door getting some gelato (of course) when we heard cheers and saw people running towards the fountain. So naturally, we followed. Turns out a man had jumped into the fountain and was down on one knee proposing to his girlfriend! Shortly after she said yes, the police arrived (to loud boos from the crowd) and tried to arrest him--I don't think they actually ended up doing so though.

Here are some pics:

Trevi fountain! Before the man jumped in...
