Here are some pictures from Italy, where I spend the last few days of my gloriously work-free last 3 weeks.
Me and Anna at the Vatican:
Me and Anna at the Pantheon:
Me standing in a fountain. It was so cold it actually hurt my ankles, which was awesome.
Anna drinking from the same fountain. The standing in bit was below. She didn’t stand in it, she is too civilised for that.
We ate a lot of really good food. The Italians are pretty good at food.
This meal was on a terrace by the sea, with beach umbrellas closed up for the night and a beautiful sunset.
And afterwards we ate ice cream. There was a lot of amazing ice cream.
Apparently Italian cats also sit in boxes.
We visited the etruscan tombs at Cerveteri, a short bus ride north of the town where we were staying. We left before 7 am but it was still stiflingly hot on the walk there.
But it was cooler in the tombs.
And at least it was forested and shady.
And they were kind enough to supply a cat at the cafe. Good place.
