A Stranger in a Strange Land
No photos yet, but the following observations:
1. Italy is hot this time of year, and people just don't seem to need air conditioning.
2. France is also hot this time of year. The beaches are terrific, but everyone (and I mean EVERYONE, young and old) thinks to seem that clothing is optional.
3. Fewer things on this Earth are more intense than going to confession at the Vatican. They don't mess around there. The priest kept me kneeling in the confessional for 45 minutes!
4. Nobody likes to stand in line in most of Europe. Someone even cut me off in the communion line at mass in St. Peter's Basilica. I'm pretty sure God was watching.
More soon... #
