After spending most of the morning inside the Vatican, we decided that we would take a bus to Trastevere. We wandered around an underground bus station and since no busses showed up and there were no people around, we decided that it must have been abandoned. It was bizarre. Just below the bustling cobblestone streets was this empty, eerie place that felt like a scene from a horror movie.
“Let’s just walk,” I said. After all, we had a map and 4 college degrees. What could go wrong? Well, the map failed to indicate numerous dead end streets leading us down street after street with no outlet. So eventually we gave up on the map and followed our instincts.
