Interesting feeling about visiting the Vatican City... much more to discuss in person.  Curious that there is a live feed on our TV about the protests happening at this moment about the 'victims" of some of the heavy issues facing this religious group at this time in our lives.  This feeling was hard to overlook when viewing the beauty of the Vatican City.  VERY short time here - basically overnite before flying to Malta. 
BUT spent a great day travelling from Cinque Terre to Rome by train - Mike - part of your Xmas stocking has been stitched in Italy!:) and did a wee tour around Vatican City.  Stopped for a glass of vino afterwards - wonderful conversation with restaurant owner - young and so concerned about the upbringing of his daughter - Anouck.  She and I had such fun playing Nerf ball - kept hitting fancy vehicles and giggling - life always so sweet when children are involved and near. 
Hilarious dinner (with amazing pasta) recommended by our young B and B fella after assessing whether or not we were into rather basic surroundings with excellent food - he was bang on!  another whole story on the eve - from John and Oko lookalikes to loads of crazy locals in a small cafe with soccer game blaring and chef/father barking orders!  I think it was our laughing and enjoying which provided us with complimentary limoncetta :)
Onto Malta in a.m
Ciao for now!.
