Future on the wall

Today Awa on the Road reminded me of my first visit to Roma and Vatican four years ago.

On the wall of the Vatican Museum I took a photo of the map of my future neighbourhood, I just didn’t know it yet. After all, it was only the first time I met my internet friend. We didn’t even have a language in common. His English was speak-as-it-reads, whereas my Italian was limited to the words that Slovenians had nicked from the Italians, such as garderoba (“guardaroba”).

Here is a little tour of the Vatican Museum with the famous Sistine Chapel (where photography is forbidden), but there is much more than that to be seen.

  1. I will never look at an antique marble statue of a man with a lot of hair in the same way. That also goes for statues of angels and prophets, too. Oh dear!

    The Gallery of the Maps!! One of my favourite spots in Rome ❤ They did a great job mapping the whole Italy without having technical instruments!
