So many tourists visit the Vatican city. On October 22, 2012, I was a part of those tourists.
Although there weren’t many people compared to the day before, the place wasn’t precisely empty.
Everyone was roaming around, taking pictures here and there. And like I said, I was among those “everyone”.
One time we passed by a woman who was bowing down, either by prayer or for money. I’m not one to understand the workings in this city so I truly can’t explain her… position.
It’s amazing how these structures were built.

Then the sculptures. Now this, is Europe.
And surely as proof that one is really really really in the Vatican, one can’t miss this guy:

Haha, this is waaay irrelevant than what’s supposed to be in this post.
Anyway, when you don’t have thousands of people packed in a tiny place, the Vatican city is actually spacious.
It became easier to take a picture with the fountain.
For my next post, watch out as I show you what’s inside the famous St. Peter’s Basilica.
