Rome, 29 August

I know that Rome is more than St Peter's Basilica (espresso for instance), but its interior is quite literally breathtaking in its scale and grandeur.

I fear for the custodians of this place, if that is what the Italian people are. I know its a bit like an American's view of Australia before she has stepped outside the airport, but as far as I can see Italians are doomed. They smoke too much, they eat too much, and their compliance with the rules of the road is approximate at best. Still, many are charming, patient and hospitable to crude visitors like us.
