Vatican

Thursday, July 10th 2003

I headed for the Vatican. As I walked into St. Peter's Square, there was nothing to indicate that I was leaving Italy and entering the smallest country in the world.

Seeing the sights in this country would not take long. I wandered into the vast Basilica de San Pietro. The size of the place was stunning, and as full of tourists as it was, it still didn't feel crowded. Sunlight shone in from the top of the dome.
