Everyone soon or late comes round by Rome

(attributed to the poet Robert Browning).

The now infamous “American pose.”

Aren’t I such a great Catholic? (In front of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican)

All photos from my June trip to Italy are now here.

Travelogue of some sort will be up in the future.

Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go

…according to Truman Capote, and I’d have to agree with him. I uploaded all my Venice photos to my album. This city is amazingly beautiful…

Next up, Rome.

Hols in Italy


I’m going on a holiday (or “hols”) in Italy from June 27-30. That’s British for “I’m taking a vacation in Italy.” I always thought “holiday” referred to Christmas, Easter, etc, but over here it doubles for “vacation.” Aren’t you glad I am here to translate this Britspeak for you?


I’ll be in Rome, and then Venice. Unfortunately, though, I won’t be staying in a 5-star hotel or buying $10 Cokes like these U.S. government employees! Damn, I should apply for a job at the CIA!
