Quick Post from Sunday

Just mainly pictures here. I stopped by the internet place by the Pantheon on my way home. Usually I write out the post ahead of time so I can think about what I want to say. Haven’t done that, plus am extremely tired from all the walking I’ve done today.

Here’s a link to where I’ve walked today. Plus around Vatican City counterclockwise and then backtracking back to the convent.

Some random pictures from today.

Outside the Pantheon. Think I paid him 45 cents for the pictures

The Swiss Guard at the Vatican (at least according to a Tom Clancy novel I read once)

Gas stations here are literally on the side of the road. No more than 2-3 pumps, attendant sits outside. Space for 1-2 cars max.

They have guys at the coliseum dressed up that you can pay a few Euros to and get your picture taken with.

  1. Sorry your email is down. Have loved the pics. I don’t know if you got the one about Ilse but she is leaving tomorrow and I am picking up the key. I haven’t forgotten that you need me to pick you up on Sat. Keep enjoying things. E
