Vatican City

Sorry for the silence these past few days....you know how it goes with me....sometimes im able to write every second day...sometimes it may take a whole week between two posts....

And lets start off with something really extra....well, I do have some other cards showing the St. Peter's Square in Vatican.....but this one feels more special than them all....first of all because it was sent as a total surprise...second...well, ill tell you the second reason later ;)
Funny but, what comes on my mind regarding Vatican right now, apart from the Pope of course, is what happened during the Christmas Eve mass..when this lady attacked the Pope...when I watched it on TV she seemed to have done it with such ease...as if the guards were in some slow motion....and of course, she was said to be mentally unstable...cant claim if she really was or no, but its funny how when people go to court coz they are guilty of something, their defense is that he or she did it coz was mentally unstable, was unable to think rationally coz of this or that, has serious psychiatric disorders, etc etc etc...and of course, judges cant fight against that the same way they would if the person who did the crime is said to have been completely sane....

well, this is the second reason why this card feel so special...it has a Vatican stamp on it and is postmarked directly from Vatican City!!! Wohoooo!!What a joy!! This feels like a real rarity!
The stamp is from a set of 7 issued in 2009, commemorating 80 years of Vatican City...and of course, it shows the Pope....
