So without further adieu, here goes...
first international flight evah
that's the Alps under the clouds there
first stop in Rome... Casa Santa Maria alle Fornaci
then a quick walk to the PNAC for our papal audience tickets
a great find on the way back to the hotel
and a bottle of wine from the St. Cloud seminarians studying in Rome
a very nice European bathroom, ladies
must have tickets
security is everywhere
people-watching before the Holy Father arrives
who are these people?
wait, wait, there he is, I think
the crowd behind us
Dan tried to take a picture of the Italian military, big no-no, so he settled
for a quick pic with the police.
serious parking issues
really serious parking issues
Once Dan knew that there would be no photographing military, it became his mission to get them in the background. Hence this lovely picture.
A short walk from St. Peter's, this is Castel Sant'Angelo
(otherwise known as Hadrian's Mausoleum)
and the not so lovely Tiber
(made me truly appreciate our beautiful lake)
what's Rome without persistent traffic
and a car dealership!!
Stay tuned for future updates...
