Don't ask me how I did it, but yes, these are two photos I took from my room's balcony at the Institute for Continuing Theological Education at the Pontifical College North American in Vatican City. As you can see my balcony overlooks Saint Peter's Square! How cool is that?
At about 7:30 AM Rome time, 1:30 AM Georgia time, I arrived in Rome and after having gone through customs and picked up my luggage, we were taken to the Pontifical College North American. We are staying in a newly renovated former convent on the grounds called "Casa O'Toole" quite Italian!
I am very excited and Roma is beautiful, busy and crazy, but fun because of it. And some of the best views of the city are to be had here at the North American atop the Ginculum Hill.
I am on the 4th floor of the building, have a balcony off my room and a wonderful view of St. Peter's Basilica and the window from which Pope Francis delivers the Angelus Address at Noon Sunday and where popes once lived until Pope Francis decided he wanted to stay at the Vatican Motel 6.
I am in a bit of a daze and will blog later perhaps, Pranzo, I mean, dinner is at 1 PM in the seminary dining hall. I am hungry!
Unfortunately, I don't know how to get my photos that I take and post them unlike with the Windows Computers that I have in the States, is easy to do, but not on the Ipad for some odd reason. Oh, well!
