We are now in Rome and spent most of today at the Vatican. I did find the funniest bit of trivia today ... the reason you are not allowed to take pictures of the Sistine Chapel is because Fuji Film owns the photo rights! I am not kidding ... the Roman church sold the rights to pay for the recent restoration. Too funny!
I have taken hundreds of photos, including this one. In fact I think I have 50 that look like this one ... so there will be no shortage of material to paint when I return. We board the cruise tomorrow and we sail from Rome to Venice for a week. So ... lots of boat pictures I am sure! Yeah!!!
