Back from foreign climes

By

It was a late one getting in last night and though I feared my pictures would have to include a volcanic cloud – its path never crossed mine.
I have to warn you that the wildlife pics are few and far between so forgive my indulgence with a few holiday snaps for your amusement.
I will do another in a few days if you would like.

The rare Spaghetti eating sparrow

The rarer Tiramasu eating bird

It had been raining before we arrived and the evening turned into a fantastic show of colour.


Yes I know -- but there was no way I was throwing my money away

Just a view as I came out ofd a supermarket of a lovely church.

Vittorio Emanuelle Monument

They reallymust get the builders in and get on with this place.

This fellow in white kept walking in to the picture.

I do not see why so many people want to just sit on these steps even if they are Spanish.

Great pics, Mike, especially the one of the Pope. I would "die" for that birdbath in the last pic however! :-)

Looks like a wonderful trip Mike and have to agree with Muddy esp if you can get that close to the Pope : )
