A Pope, a Queen and lots of Statues

Rome was amazing....I'm pretty sure the Pope waved to me from the Library window. It's not my fault no one else witnessed or my camera was put away. We have walked miles ate the best Italian food, drink some of the best Red Wines and way too many statues and marble Penises for my fifteen year old. Was within spitting distance to the most beautiful Queen of Jordan and so far the Gypsies have been scarce. We are in Florence now and it is all about The David and his grandness!! More later ....Ciao Bella's!!

Yup, that last photo is great!

The French routinely expose their children to art (with penii and breastesas) and rape is a very rare thing in that country.

It is so prevalent over here in the USA because we hide our children from the truth of art. And life.

I'm soooo jealous! I want to go to Italy!

You're daughter is so cute. I would've been doing naughty things to the statues!

Do me a favor and send a tall, dark and handsome Italian man my way!

I'm so glad you're having such a great vacation! Also, I think I could suggest a subject for a photo essay... The last picture being the inspiration!

Lisa said...

I don't know what I am jealous about the most.... the wine, food or those statues!! Glad you are having a great trip!

I saw the award you passed on to me... thank you!!!! I just got back from my trip and am just now getting back into the swing of things. I plan on following up on it in the next day or so!

This is the best post you've ever done :))) I loved it! And the last photo, brilliant....

I bet the rest of Italy is just jealous the Pope waved at you. Don't take on their baggage....

I love Florence...oh I love it...I wish I was there with you!

Thanks for your comment. It's always nice to "meet" other expats. We have been in Germany for about 2.5 months so far!
