Statues Caught in Traffic

Day 5.

Today (Sunday) we woke up pretty late, and to make up for our laziness we set off in search of the correct Metro route to get us to school quicker than the 30 minutes we had been walking. We are lucky to have a Metro stop about a block from our apartment and decided to hop on and see where it took us. We ended up COMPLETELY in the wrong direction and ended up giving up trying to find our school and set in search of the Trevi Fountain instead. Well we didn't find that either, but we ended up walking through a little garden, finding interesting winding streets and eventually came to a four way intersection with these beautiful statues on the four corners of the sidewalks. The juxtaposition of the stoplight and the statues was very interesting; like this bustling metropolitan city had been built right around these old carvings. Its the little things like this that have been keeping me surprised every day.
