Yes, dear fellow Elftowners, [Teufelsweib], the owner of this little chick self, went to Italy and took her precious little world traveller with her!
and she also got to see some other countries, since I was doomed to sit 23 hours in the bus >_>;;
anyway, here are the pictures of MM october 2006 in Rome ^^

But first the long bus trip...


in Luxembourg:

OK! Enough with the nonsense!
here come the pictures taken in ITALY!
Rome!
note1: behind every building here is a long story, but I'm not going to write every history or meaning behind every single picture. interested? ask in the comment box. or look on wikipedia. not interested? what are you doing here in the first place?! :P
Note2: a lot of pictures taken inside are blurry, yes, I know. In most churches and musea you aren't allowed to flash (if to take photo's at all), so this is what you get.

2006-11-14 [Sauron]: First one to comment! :P
GREAT pictures! I dont even have other words!

2006-11-15 [Teufelsweib]: thank you ^^

2006-11-15 [BlackDragon]: This definatly puts Italy on my "want to visit"- country list. Great photos! Still.. MM looks a bit.. dead? =p

2006-11-16 [Teufelsweib]: you should really go there sometime, it's amazing ^^
thank you :)

Maria is nearly dead :P but I've got an idea for the next time when I send her somewhere.. instead of wrapping her up in bubblewrap I'm going to buy one of those tictac boxes which are transparent and that can be sent in an envelope ^^
so she will be better protected the next time :P

2006-11-16 [Tingis]: hahaha smart to put MM in that little tube/box whatever it is^^ and btw, when I was in Italy I counted 96 stray dogs and 150 stray cats :P

2006-11-16 [Teufelsweib]: :O wow XD I didn't even bother to count :P
she's there in a little plastic pot that I got from chemistry class :P

2006-11-16 [Tingis]: you 'got' it from chemistry class? :P
But the photos are great.. have you done something else besides photographing MM ? :P

2006-11-16 [Teufelsweib]: uuuh.. I got it... a little bit :P
yes, dragging MM along to all those places :P
no, of course not XD I walked around all those places you see above, and in some museums you weren't allowed to take pictures.. like inside the 'sixtijns kapel' (don't know the english name XD)
from Michaelangelo :3

2006-11-17 [Tingis]: aaah yes^^what did you like the most ?

2006-11-17 [Teufelsweib]: of all the things above?
hmmm... Pompeii :3

2006-11-18 [Moonknight]: hee! very nice, shes in a flask now?? some interesting system to protect her :P

2006-11-18 [Teufelsweib]: whee! ^^ thanks Santi :3 *huggles*

she's in a flask, but since that doesn't fit in an envelope she's being sent around in bubblewrap >_> only when I take her somewhere she goes into that flask :P
