Still traveling in my head. Still in Italy.

When we were in Rome we visited the Vatican which is where we encountered this back-in-time (but what time?) fellow, a member of the Pontifical Swiss Guard. The guard protects the pope and the palace all the while looking very theatrical. A good fit I say. In addition to this full-dress uniform the guard also have a more sedate (largely blue) service dress uniform.
