Vatican City

22 Feb

We queued for almost 40mins to get into the buildings surrounded by these concrete walls. We had so much time waiting we had to do something productive.

i dont remember what obelisk this was. Everybody was just taking pictures with it so we followed suit.

on our way to the famed Sistine Chapel through a maze of Vatican museums and the picture galleries. The paintings and designs u see on the ceilings and walls are just breathtaking..Most were painted to exude 3d effects. How cool is that.
