The World's Smallest Country

^^Our guide
^^modern in ancient

Our tour of Vatican City, the world's smallest country. First off, meet our tour guide, she is very passionate about the information she shares with people, and loves to call everyone "her dears." We visited a giant pine cone, a room full of maps, the Sistine Chapel ceiling, works by Rembrandt verses the works of Michelangelo, the Pieta, and the real life tomb of the apostle Peter.

The Sistine Chapel ceiling is amazing. Especially the middle where God is reaching out to give life to Adam. The colors are beautiful. Sadly you aren't allowed to take pictures in the chapel, so Google it if you want I suppose.

Seeing the Pieta was the most special part, because that was the moment literally all of my mom's life dreams came true.
