My Roman Holidays January 3, 2010

As every world city, Rome has its flair and very special style… I would call it MAGNIFICENT  – the word that came to my mind the first time I saw Rome many years back and now, having spent a week there I can confirm it. Magnificent – is the first and only word that comes to my mind when thinking of Rome’s beauty.

The weather was rainy most of the time, but even the clouds have been magnificent, making up a great background for the pictures…

I visited many historical places and as well as the modern parts. Interestingly, the Vatican looked as the darkest and most unfriendly place from all. I wonder how can people seek for God in there?

Please enjoy the pictures and thanks for the comments :)!

LOVE; axinia

    thanks for sharing …

  3. Sì! Roma è magnifica… grazie per queste immagini! 🙂

    The Italians seem to have a flair for art and design inbuilt in them… they certainly design the most beautiful automobiles in the world, no doubt about that!

    Interestingly, the Vatican looked as the darkest and most unfriendly place from all. I wonder how can people seek for God in there?

    Certainly makes sense and sounds logical… I knew it would be very difficult to feel the presence of Christ in the Vatican 😐

    But Axinia…

    If one particular semi-civilised, badly overpopulated Third World barbarocratic empire that’s characterised by a “culture” that’s an amalgamation of many savage, primitive and uncouth practices can attract many wise seekers who want to find “spirituality” in it and

    If one particular murderous Middle Eastern religio-racist fascist theocracy can attract many pilgrims from a troika of religions who seek to travel to the “holy land”,

    Then a tiny little sovereign city-state ruled by an elected pontiff-king that’s the remnant of an institution that once controlled several empires and kingdoms attracting so many believers who go there to seek “God” begins to make sense and sound logical to me 😐

    All the above three sound the same to me!

    🙂

        Oh, you’re welcome. With pictures, especially those taken with an eye for beauty and love, they have so much to say you can’t help but be silent and listen. It’s wonderful.
