I am back from vacationing in Italy. I was hoping to have some things to share, and I do. Just less than I had hoped for.
Rome has almost as many Egyptian obelisks as Egypt has, but I only managed to see two of them (at the Vatican and the Spanish Stairs). We ran out of time and did not get to any of the others. I also had hoped to see the Egyptian collection at the Vatican Museum, but it was so crowded that we were only (!) able to see the Raphael paintings and the Sistine Chapel.
The photos will be downloaded from the camera in the next couple of days and they will be posted as soon as possible.
