First time overseas.

If you want to pray, pray for:

1) Air Canada pilots, technicians, and flight crew
2) Airport traffic control
3) On-time flights and that we make it in time
4) Pickpockets to stay away
5) Lack of Italian language skills

If you don't want to pray, then don't!

Hmmm, that was pretty selfish in hindsight. Why don't you pray for someone who needs it more?

=) See ya

i'll pray under one condition..... if you go to the leaning tower of pisa and take a picture, PLEASE don't do that thing where you frame it up so it looks like you're holding the tower up.

Ohhh I'm going to Pisa tomorrow and I will have to do the holding up pose. I didn't know about that until you mentioned it.

One of my sisters did take a picture of me holding that Pisa tower up last year. :)

Pisa is a little fake looking to me. Siena is intense.

Even in the off season, we had to wait our "turn" to get that picture at the perfect angle. I really liked Pisa. I've never seen grass so green as the grass around that Church (in the dead of winter).
