I had the opportunity to spend a delightful weekend in Rome with my family. Of course, we endured the queues and were successful in visiting the Vatican Museum. Surely there is no other place on Earth like it.
The biggest surprise to me was the Sistine Chapel. Yes, it is stagering in its beauty. However the biggest surprise was how unsafe it appeared to be. One small door in. One small door out. Despite this, thousands of people squeezed into a very small space indeed with no visible means of emergency exit. A disaster will occur here.
