Rome If You Want To (Part IV)

Just a few quick pics to kill of the remainder of my lackluster attempt to capture the splendor of one of the most beautiful cities in the world (despite the graffiti that is everywhere--everywhere, that is, I was pleased to discover, except on important ancient ruins. Also, I lie... I'll probably post more Rome pics later on this week).

These are random, non-essential shots but they'll hopefully give you a taste of what touring around Rome is like (not like the boring, staged postcard type crap...we'll see...)
This is where you would sit if you wanted the Pope to shout at you and tell you that you were going to Hell. Thankfully, while we were here he was in Prague telling the locals that they were going to Hell. Luck break for us!
This is what you can and cannot wear into the inner Holy Sanctuary.
No, I don't quite get it either...Does the Pope hate purple and orange??? Or does he only hate purple and orange swimming suits? Your guess is as good as mine.

Man! I'm deep in thought! And at the top of St. Peter's! High and deep at the same time! It's like Holy Drugs!
If you want to make yourself sick, I suggest you climb ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP of St. Peter's. When you get to the steps around the dome it totally screws with your mind and sense of balance. And the lighting makes your head look bald. It's so totally weird!This is the view from the top--after you've pushed aside the crazy tourists, that is. The second after I took this pic I was shoved to the side and kicked severely in the groin. That's the price you pay for adventure tourism...that and 4 Euro.
This is the toilet on the top of Vatican. (There's a 'Holy Crap' joke here somewhere...)

Perhaps the Pope only hates men who wear bicycle pants.

Of course! Who doesn't hate men who wear bicycle pants?
