This morning we went to the Vatican City. It was quite a long wait for the metro. Well, what do we expect, it was Christmas morning, metros didn't come by as frequently and everyone wanted to go to Vatican City.
We then walked to Castel Sant'Angelo nearby. Hz said it was the final scene in Angels & Demons (Dan Brown's book). I couldn't recall at all.
We crossed Ponte Sant'Angelo and walked to Piazza Navona. There’s a very colorful Christmas market at the plaza.
Then we walked to Fontana di Trevi. People say if you throw a coin over your shoulder into the fountain, you will return to Rome. I didn't, so let's see if I still make it here in the future anyway. By the way I already left a bigger piece of history at Foro Romano yesterday, remember? ;-)
Since it was Christmas most shops and malls were closed. Fortunately those at Termini were mostly open so we spent the rest of the day browsing the shops there.

Owh, I saw Tania and her family at a halal restaurant today. We were just walking out when I saw them walking in. What a small world! I could have easily met her in KL yet no, we met in Rome instead! It was the first time I saw her since I went to her Eid open house months ago. It was funny coz during the open house we talked about our holiday plans and I told her how awesome it would be to spend Christmas in Rome. She told me her parents were thinking of going to Rome for their year-end vacation. We both agreed that Vatican City was a must-visit, after reading Angels and Demons and watching the movie. And today here we are, all in Rome!
