I've been posting the pics of our 2010 holiday over at flickr.com. The most surreal part was the day we visited Vatican City, the pope was holding the wed audience out in St Peter's Square.
So I have pictures of the pope.
And the reason we were in Vatican city? We wanted to visit the Sistine Chapel. As it turns out, you don't go through St. Peter's at all, you go down a road for a bit and eventually end up at an entrance to the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. The number of tour groups that day was large, I'd hate to be there in peak season.
