My text book! (infinitely more exciting than Spanish books I had in high school...)
And because I love an excuse to post pictures from Italy...
Sister and I in front of the Vatican, Summer 2006
View of St. Peter's Square after our climb to the very top of the duomo (summer 2008). I love the symmetry of the columns surrounding the square. It just looks so, well...perfect. I read (and probably heard this during our tours of the grounds!) that Bernini designed the two walls of columns to symbolically embrace the crowds. The square can hold up to 100,000 people during religious ceremonies outside. Pretty darn amazing.
Alright, that's all I'll say about Italy today.
HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY!
