VATICAN 2003

(Square of Vatican)
(St. Peter's Basilica)
(La Pietà sculpted by Michelangelo Buonarroti)
(Inside St. Peter's Basilica)
(Vatican Museum)

For a tourist in Italy and a Catholic, Vatican city is a must place you have to visit. I am a Catholic and also a tourist to Italy in 2003, so I visited Vatican city for sure! I remember that day was Sunday, but I went there in the afternoon, so I missed the chance to see Pope. But there were still a lot to see in the St. Peter's Basilica, the most important is the Pietà by Michelangelo. Because this valuable sculpture was attacked by a terrorist by hand grenade, now is well protected by bullet-proof class.

I also visited the Vatican Museum which collects a lot of sculptures and paintings related to Catholic history and others. Of course, the end of the Vatican Museum trip was visiting Sistine Chapel where you can see the "Last Judgment" on its ceiling; it is really an amazing artwork!!

老天,連米國太空總署你都去過了~~~~`
下一站去肯亞吧!!

對了,課程結束了,感覺滿有收穫,
下一梯次應該會更好!!

順便跟你分享~~
這次的學生中,
有一個小女生的作品成功推薦給中國時報人間副刊,
如沒意外本週3見報~~

當初,
如果沒有summer引介,
我就不會認識你,
如果沒有認識你,
我就不會去教課,
我沒去教課,
那個小女生大概永遠只能關在房裡畫畫,
所以這件事你也有份喔!!!

很多事都是緣分啦,Joy找你出門普渡眾生也真是功德無量。

肯亞一直都在我的旅遊地點名單中,上次沒去成,才改去埃及的。我想應該兩年內會達成這目標,敬請期待......
