David and I went to the Vatican not to see the Pope as the Pope has totally sold out. Of tickets, I mean. There were snaking queues for him of hundreds upon hundreds, but we came to see the tree and the crèche. Really beautiful in the rain.
Rome was strangely empty this evening, but not so strange as most Italians are home with their families eating seafood.
We happened by the Trevi fountain which is NEVER without people, but the numbers were the lowest I have ever seen tonight. It is beautiful so lit up.
