Vatican City. The capital city of Italy. Overlooking St Peter's square and St Peter's basilica.
Eekim and I on a bright sunny day.
Everything was build at such a large scale you lose your perception of how big everything actually is.
Totus tuus (Totally yours) referring to the devotees and their undying love to Christianity imprinted on the floors of the basilica.
The Barcaccia fountain.
It is adorned by the coats of arms of the papal family, the Barberini and according to legend, it is the reproduction of a royal boat which ran aground here due to river flood.
Checking out the book stall.
Headed back to the hostel for free dinner which consists of free flow of macaroni. Felt like puking after grabbing two plates, but I was famished that time. Headed over to Mcds for supper. Haha, talk about binging.
We thought of seeing Rome at night but came back disappointed because there wasn't really much to see :( Rested early for a full day walking tour the next day!
Up next: Rome 1
p/s: Thanks again for the wishes and pressies and cakes and dinner/lunch treats! Happy birthday to Amyksy! She has officially turn 22~ Pictures up soon!
