The elevator in Rome was about the size of a water closet. In fact, if you put a toilet in there I’m not sure you could even fit a normal sized toilet AND a person using it. It was that small…
.
We had 3 decent sized men in there. It looked like this…
.
So when we realized it was NOT MOVING it was a very uncomfortable situation…
.
It was hot. 80+ outside, so in the tiny elevator with 3 dudes and zero airflow it was stifling. I very clearly remember the sweat dripping down my face as if I were working out…
.
But we were STUCK.
.
We pressed the alarm button. No help. We tried to call the service phone numbers. Nothing.
.
I imagined myself climbing out of the emergency hatch above and finding a way to get out of there… but there was no escape hatch!
.
So we opened the doors and found a wall of solid cement. 
.
And there we were. A Canadian and two Americans stuck in a TINY elevator in the middle of Rome on a holiday weekend. It was beginning to feel like the beginning of a very long, sad, painful experience.
.
Finally, Adam realized part of the cement was actually the steel door of one of the floors. So we banged on it. It wouldn’t budge. Feeling around I finally located the safety mechanism that keeps the door from opening unless the elevator is in place…
.
FREEDOM!
.
The rest of the trip we happily took the 5 flight walk up to the apartment.
.
I’m not sure how long we were in there. Long enough for us to exercise some serious self control in not panicking, but not so long we had to try the toilet thing. .
This is easily one thing I will never forget!
