Buon Natale da Roma
What an amazing Christmas day it has been for me here in Rome. David and I got up and went to St. Peter's on the scooter. We by dumb luck happened to be standing in the right place at the right time when they opened up the seats for the Pope's “Urbi et Orbi” (to the City and to the World) blessing and message from the balcony of St. Peter's. We just jumped in and got 3RD ROW CENTER seats. To give some idea I have taken this over the Pope's shoulder photo from the internet and if you imagine 3rd row in from the FRONT right off that middle aisle there and then you look back at the masses that was where we were in all of it. It was amazing.
