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.

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.

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 ......

Typical tourist shot.


A bunch of us driving around Rome late at night sampling the good vibe.


The white stripes in the road are the headlights of passing cars.

Driving around Rome one evening during the CocoonGT2007.


Gabriele at the wheel.

A lady heading for the Vatican bookshop, or maybe the popular post office on the south east corner of St. Peter's.

This is about as close as you can get without queueing.

"Mommy, can I bring him home?"

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


In Rome for the CocoonGT2007.
