March 7/09 You are looking at the smallest country in the world! The Vatican, Rome, Italy.
The size is so deceiving because you can’t really see any of St. Peter’s Square in front of the Basilica. It looks like it is a block away but it is more like a kilometer away. Even the huge obelisk is almost lost in this picture. This is arguably the largest church in the world.
I really wish I had had my new Sony DSC-HX1 on this trip!
