Wandering through the beautiful park at Villa Borghese in Rome one morning, looking for where the conference I was going to was running.


Had a waypoint on my GPS to head for, though that location was just a guess from hunting on Google Earth.


I made this gorgeous walk every day of the conference, after a short metro ride to Flaminio from Cipro near my B+B.

Desert #2, bisquit dipped in red wine for bisquit-dipping


The vast space of the front of Saint Peter's Square, nearly filled with fenced-off seats.

The queue for the Basilica curved all the way around the square, 9 people deep in places. I decided if I joined it, that would be the only thing I did that day. It was the same everywhere.

A series of huge, faint murals along a stretch of the river Tiber, of the legendary wolf that suckled Romulus and Remus.

Got me sword, got me walkie-talkie ...... a member of the Papal Swiss Guard answers the phone, in Piazza S. Pietro, Rome.

I am in Rome at this year's Cocoon Get Together.


The conference is at Rome's zoo, the BioPark in the centre of the city.


The hippos looked like they were having fun, sorry to say the big cats did not ......

This huge sweeping collonade curves around Piazza S. Pietro, Vatican City.

I am the head lemur, get off my branch!

Sophisticated gentleman and man-about-town (as all who know him would agree, I am sure).

They look like a rock group ....

Night time street scene in the funky Trastevere district of Rome.

The air is still warm, there is a lively, friendly atmosphere.
