St. Peters Day - more!

More pics from my day at St. Peters!

St. Peters Day

Friday I went to St. Peters Basilica, in the Vatican City --- this was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to, and I cannot wait to go back! We spent the morning in the piazza and the Church, and the afternoon was spent in the Vatican Museum, and we even went into the Sistine Chapel (sorry I don't have any pictures of that, security was TIGHT to say the least....)

I really enjoyed myself though, I really love this place

Wonderful place

St. Peters dome

Class in session

Rug room? -- These were awesome

Map room --all of the walls are lined with frescoes of maps of Italy, very accurate too!

Not sure what this was -- but they sell it in the gift shop

Jam Sesh

Well, there was once a time when I deemed myself a decent musician, this was not one of those nights...

Sorry for hurting your ears, but I thought I would at least share them with you!

Got up early this morning, made a FRESH POT of cappuccino, my new and current addiction, and immediately left for studio to finish a paper (last minute procrastinating, of course).

Entered the studio -- darkness was the mood, no sound or light from any direction -- i slowly crept toward the first lightswitch I could find, shuffling my feet lightly as to stay balanced. My hand reached toward the wall as I located the switch. I pressed directly into the upward direction, the lights above my head began to flicker slightly....then.....nothing but darkness again.

A second or two passed by, as my thoughts began to spin thinking about what was happening. All of the sudden lights appear. not bright lights, but not dark either, and at each door opening.

 Took me a second to realize it, the emergency lights had just turned on, what had just taken place? I tried the swtich again, nothing. I immediately walked to the next doorway and tried another, still nothing. What had I done?

---- turns out, we all lost power, for about 3 hours. go me. Now to write that paper -- -- ----

Cajon Box Drum

My new side project -- a Cajon Box Drum

So, I miss my drumset a lot -- so to try and cope I am going to try a build a drum on my own...In Rome.

Ferro, one of my architecture professors is going to take me on a journey to meet some restorers to see if they can help me recover some recyclable wood to build this thing. Should be interesting...
