Must-dos in Rome

In a little more than a week, the new 5th cycle students will leave for their one and only RRE initiation: the trip to Rome! Sharing a dinner, me and some other 4th cyclist went on a nostalgia trip, while thinking of last year. Although we would rather join again, having good memories is also valuable. Moreover, we could thus create a very arbitrary and personal list of everything we think one should do when being on the RRE Rome trip. Anna, Thomas and Ivana, thanks for the inspiration! ;-) 

When in Rome with RRE, one should: 

- Arrive after 11 PM at the Lebanese sisters or at least have to run to make it in time once
- Sit on the roof of the Norwegian Institute with self-cooked dinner.
- Get awesome pizza for lunch at That One Pizzeria that is close to the Institute.
- Get lost. Somewhere.
- Enter the Vatican. Either decide not to enter the St. Peter because of the long line or stand in line for two hours and be eventually not allowed in because of too short pants/skirt.
- Find a topic for both of your papers.
- Go to a Conference on an exciting Coptic fragment.
- Pet the Norwegian-Institute cat. Be careful, she can be mean.
- Get into an academic discussion with Einar Thomassen
- Eat at least one of the following: tiramisu, lasagne, risotto, crostini. Or all, that's even better. 
- Curse the stairs (You'll know what I mean)
- Learn all the names of your fellow students. 
- Conclude that Einar Thomassen was probably right.
- Find out the Coptic fragment is a fraud.
- Found a Facebook group with your classmates. (If there's none yet.)
- Eat seven ice creams. That's once every other day and we have concluded that this should be the minimum.
- Study
- if you still have time for that...

Any additions are welcome, fellow students!
