Last week I took a day trip to Bracciano on Wednesday, which is a small town about 40 minutes from Viterbo. There is a Big lake and a Castle that over looks the lake which is what we went to see! (supposedly Tom Cruise and Katie Homes got married at the castle, but they are lame so who cares haha). It was a very cute town and the views of the lake from the top of the castle were beautiful, unfortunately the water in the lake is not good water, I guess it has a lot of chemicals in it so you can't swim in it.
On Friday I had another field trip for my gardens class to Caprarola. We toured the palace first and then we went into the gardens.
On Sunday I went to zoo in Rome with Rachal, Jenny, Beth, Amy, Paige, Tina and Mike! It was fun to see the zoo, it wasn't the best zoo I have ever been to (the best zoo I have ever been to is probably the Bronx zoo), but it was still a lot of fun!

Walking to the lake
That was the steepest hill ever and we had to walk up it
My favorite tree, they are starting to bloom everywhere I love it!!
(Mom do you know what it is?)
Map Room: the whole room had maps of every country painted on the walls
It was used by the servants
Wooden Ceiling: this was my favorite one
All the other ceilings were frescoed
A chair: I love seeing the furniture in the palaces because that is was I have learned about!
