Ronn and I had the most awesome day at the Vatican with a private tour given to us by our friend Loreto, compliments of our dear friend Valerio Ventura. Loreto is a camera man for the pope so he knows very well the Vatican and we got to visit the Sistine chapel and met father Bruno of the chapel Santanna, check out which is a lovely private chapel for the citizens of Vatican city. Truly a world within a world Vatican city has so much history of course and it was quite a treat to see some of it privately. We also got to see the swiss guards who have been guarding the pope for 500 years and had a private tour of their quarters, which was quite interesting. It was becoming quite difficult to walk the streets of Rome with crowds of people recognizing Ronn and constantly asking for photos. Loreto then took us to a private restaurant for the most amazing lunch and Ronn and I headed back to the hotel because he is coming down with a slight cold. Because of this, we decided to decline our invitation to Italian actress Nancy Brilli’s home tonight and stayed in with a bottle of champagne to toast the new year. I wanted Ronn to rest because he has a full week of dance lessons before his first competition next week. I will post some photos and video soon as Ronn feels better and gives me something. Hope you all are having a wonderful new year!

Buon Anno!

  2. Ronn&Devin,

    I wish you both a Happy New Year 2010!
    I’ve been a fan of B&B for many years and I never in a million years thought that I’ll be able to see Ronn dancing on Italian TV.
    Even if I would love it better to see Ronn on the US version I’ll be rooting for you every weekend.

  3. Happy New Year Ronn and Devin,

    I love reading your diary. We also loved the Vatican, but unfortunately, the Sistine Chapel was closed when we were there. A good reason to go back to Rome!

    Enjoy your stay!

    Love, Nikkie
