Il Papa.

Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 11.05.13 AM

After a walk from Trastevere to the Centro Storico, some sketching at Santa Maria della Pace and a brisk stroll around St. Ivo alle Sapienza, Chiostro del Bramante and the Pantheon, we came back through San Pietro and happened upon the Papal motorcade as it it left the Vatican.  We took video but had to make do with this grainy screen-capture (blogging challenges + a dicey internet connection); you can see two of the papal secret service agents around Il Papa’s car and a Swiss Guard (sadly, he was not carrying a halberd at the time) in the right part of the image.  If he’s in town, we might see if he’ll be around the Apostolic Palace to bless the Sunday crowds in St. Peter’s Square… the Pope that is, not the Swiss guard without the halberd.
