Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to praise Italy.
For reasons I am only partly responsible for, it took me 56 years to get to Italy. I mean for God's sake I went to Finland BEFORE Italy. What's with that? I plead temporary insanity and ignorance. However, now that I have been to Italy, I understand why tourists have been going there for 2,000 years.
If you click on these photos you can see high resolution versions that are pretty cool if I do say so myself!
