See Previous Post

Here's the photo mentioned in the previous post of St. Peter's Basilica in The Vatican with me and my travelmates posed in front of it. We were not allowed to take photos of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, understandably, but it was breathtaking. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is next (on a rainy, dreary day) and just one of the beautiful Renaissance art pieces that we saw on a building there. I am still pinching myself to see if I really did see the works of Michaelangelo, Raphael, DaVinci, and the like.

You made wonderful pictures. How many days did you spend in Italy? Before we had kids we spent holidays once a year at various parts of Italy and Tuscany is one of our favorites. Last time I've been in Italy was at Roma in November 2000. I was already pregnant but I didn't know. I hope your tomato-mozzarella-sandwich worked out fine.

Have you found any fabric stores in your travels?

Good luck in finding fresh mozzarella -- the sandwiches sound delicious. a new recipe for a food you love is a wonderful souvenir *s*

I think the leaning tower looks even neater with the gray clouds as a backdrop. :)

And if you walk up the steps of the Leaning Tower, you can bold it in the list of things you have done meme.

You are a list maker? I like to watch the odometer turn over, and believe it or not, I got a big thrill from your blog when I clicked it over to 16,000. Oh dear, do I need a life or what? 8-) You have so many visitors - thanks for all your ideas and wonderful photos.
