Roma, otto and nove

Here we are on day 2...LUNCH!  We happened in to a small restaurant that catered to the Americans with jazz legends and sports paraphernalia.  It is called La Base--cute.

this picture is for my aunt and uncle in OK who are HUGE Rangers fans.  Sorry to our Cards fans in MO
Riley felt this was the best place to eat since we found her name in neon on the wall.

From there we proceeded to a couple of churches on our list to see in Rome.  We found Santa Maria Maggiore first.

In this basilica are pieces of wood believed by some to be pieces from Jesus' manger.

Next we headed to San Pietro in Vincoli (St. Peter in Chains).  This church has the chains from Peter's captivity in both Jerusalem and Rome.  Legend says that when the two sets of chains were brought together, they became one chain.  Also in this church is the famous sculpture of Moses by Michelangelo.

Day 2, Stops 8 and 9, Check
