Postcard from The Vatican



While in Rome this week for a preview drive of Toyota's new small car, the Aygo, I took the opportunity to try its city performance by driving to St Peter's Square.



There were long lines of people queuing to visit Pope John Paul II's tomb, and also to buy those special Vatican stamps that mark the interregnum between popes, but I didn't have the time to do either.



I did drop into the Basilica, though, something I was prevented from doing the last time I tried some years ago ... because I was wearing shorts!

(If I'd been wearing a skirt, showing my knees, it would have been OK. Go figure ...)

Anyway, it is certainly a stunning place, as some of these pictures I took may convey.
