Why do the weekends go by so fast? Even though I telework on Mondays, I feel like I need an extra day to recover from the weekend. The sad part is that I didn't really do much at all.
But enough of that...Here are some more pictures from our time in Rome. And yes, more pictures of J & Albie.
On our way to the Vatican.
Yes...I have a thing for the signs. I just love how easy it was to find places without it feeling like I was on a scavenger hunt!
Inside the Vatican museum.
I thought this was quite interesting. I think its a god of fertility or something. That's A LOT of eggs!
This picture doesn't do it justice. The art was just magnificent!
How many of you saw Mission Impossible? This is a view of one of the scenes where Tom Cruise went into the Vatican. I believe a scene from the DaVinci Code with Tom Hanks was also filmed here as well.
Can't remember what this building is called.
In front of the museum. It was a little cloudy but that lasted for like half an hour and then the sun came out again.
OK...I know this isn't entirely true BUT I told J that this is the bust of a black roman. He thought it was funny :-).
I had to take a picture next to my kin-folk :-).
When in Rome?...Since the Vatican is considered its only country, we just HAD to mail something from there so that we can say we visited 2 Countries :-).
While waiting to get into St. Peter's Basilica, this family just cut in front of us. And to make matters worse, they kept looking back at us to see if we would say something. How rude!
St. Peter's Basilica!
This post wouldn't be complete without ANOTHER picture of Albie and J! This pic was taken from the front of the Basilica.
Inside the Basilica. J said Albie was feeling ignored by me so I was forced to take a picture with him. I don't think Albie likes me :-).
"Upon this rock I will build my church". If you remember that line from the Bible and also from the movie The DaVinci Code, you'll know the reference here. The bones of St. Peter are supposedly here.
Yes...even Albie wanted to find out why everyone was looking down.
J touching the feet of St. Peter. The Basilica was just so amazing, I couldn't capture it all.
Outside St. Peter's Basilica. Next to the Rotunda. There was a little bi-racial girl there who kept calling me "mommy." Freaked me out a bit. I just smiled at her and her mom apologized saying she calls every black woman mommy since her mom is black.
Had to take a picture of yet another couple who had just gotten married. I will post more pics from our visit to the Colosseum. There was A TON of couples there. This couple were on the Spanish steps. We went back there on day 2.
Santa Maria Maggeiori. We went there late so we couldn't get inside. I needed my daily nap afterall :-).
Until next time. Arrivederci!
