Randomly roaming in Rome

A few random snaps of one of our Roman walkabouts.

All roads (and stairs) lead to ummmm..... here.




The church of  San Pietro in Vincoli where we saw another magnificent Michelangelo statue.
Now why - do you ask - does Moses have a pair of horns sticking out of his head?
Well due to an unfortunate medieval mis-translation of ancient Hebrew text, Moses is depicted with satyrs horns instead of a halo in many works of art.

Rather calamitous for Moses





Me watching the guy watching hubby taking my photo and eyeing my bag that hubby insisted on holding but then put on the ground.  While hubby's attention was diverted the other guy slowly moved closer and closer to my bag.

I dashed forward and grabbed it before the other guy did.




Poor hubby was too trusting, but soon learned.

  1. It's a nice photo, though. Like the header picture too - it looks a little familiar...

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
