Petered out

Today, we learned from CNN, it was to be hot - 31ºC hot - and sunny. It was. And we were rubbernecking big style at the Vatican. I shall reflect on this later, when I'm not picking words out on my phone, but I have to remark on the constant yells of 'silenzio' from the guardians of the Sistine Chapel, the effectiveness of a severely pious look when heading for a wee sit down in an area reserved for prayer, and the wonderful unobtrusive nature of the Leica when snatching forbidden photos. And prayer? Never felt less like it.

    St Peter's left me cold as far as praying was concerned. S Maria in Trastevere is the place to go for that.
