The most public moving-day in Rome...

I decided to pop over to St Peter's this morning. I'd intended going into the Basilica to pay my respects at the grave of the late Holy Father, but seeing that a long queue had formed at 9am I decided to defer that for another day. I went to the Vatican post office, sent a few packages and bought a few stamps. I sat outside what was Cardinal Ratzinger's apartment for a while writing as few postcards. A truck was parked outside and workmen brought down cardboard boxes while German and Italian TV crews filmed them. I suppose he'll spend the afternoon unpacking them. ;)
