Vatican City ...

So I figured I'd spend my birthday with the Pope ... seemed kind of appropriate.

So I started the day by having a look around his local church ...





Then I read my kindle for an hour and a half as I shuffled my way into the Vatican museum ...
















I wandered around with the hordes rather overwhelmed by everything ...




Then it was time to leave for my lunch appointment with the big P.


Just me and fifty godzillion other people that decided to turn up ...


and then ... there he was ... if I held my camera up high enough and at just the right angle, I could just get a shot of him standing at his window ...

But then I got sick of that so I walked back to my hotel with my birthday treat ...


... and that was my birthday.

  1. Sounds like a great day John.. especially the chocky cone at the end.. pity you didn't get invited for lunch with the pope that was a bit rude of him.. especially since it was your big 40!!
