Well, this is it.
the last two minutes of the year.
2012 was interesting
it had its ups
and its downs.
Lets hope 2013 will be even better
|Me and Dad in Rome|
|With the Romans|
|I didn't take this photo|
My Mum should be a Supermodel!
|Please Note the IRISH Flag in the background|
Before I go, a little Christmas Cheer . . .
|GO LEWIS AND AVALON!!!!!!|
(You may not get this!)
As Australia’s Unknown Soldier was laid to rest in the Hall of Memory, the late Robert Comb, a World War I veteran, who had served in battles on the Western Front, sprinkled soil from Pozieres, France over the coffin and said, “Now you’re home, mate”.
… We will never know who this Australian was. Yet he has always been among those we have honoured. We know that he was one of the 45,000 Australians who died on the Western Front, one of the 416,000 Australians who volunteered for service in World War I … and one of the 100,000 Australians who have died in wars this century. He is all of them. And he is one of us …
|Grizabella, the she-cat who sings Memory|
|Victoria, the sweet little kitten|
|The Rum Tum Tugger|
|Yes, we are in Rome.|
|cherub #1: This is how you do it, mate|
cherub #2: yeah, I'm (not) watching
|the crowds at the Vatican - AHHH!!!|
|Mum really liked walking up and down steps|
|One of the street sellers - some were selling water bottles.|
View from on top of the bus
(and no, I wasn't pretending to be a Spice Girl)
|These were EVERYWHERE! Street corners were most popular|
|The Vatican |
If you look closely, you might see the GINORMOUS line to get into the Vatican
|ok, so maybe this wasn't a street.|
|Piazza Navona, just down the street|
|see, the roads are tiny! |
they like gelati
and anyone who has been to Rome, and did not meet anyone else calling out
"umbrelli, umbrelli" or "half price, half price"
you need an award.
oh, and just in case you didn't notice,
they are driving on the wrong side of the road.
well, the rest of Rome will have to wait.
I have to get on with my science.
