Vacation in the Moutains!

"Vatican City - Pope Benedict XVI on Monday headed for the Italian Alps, where he was expected to enjoy a nearly three-week holiday reading, writing and taking leisurely walks in the woods...According to Rome-based daily Il Messaggero, the recently-elected pontiff would be taking advantage of the quieteness of the mountains to start work on his first encyclical."

Vacation in the mountains, that sounds lovely. I'm sure it's starting to get verrrrry warm in Rome this time of year, but at least they have air-conditioning now. Why o why do I have "How do you solve a problem like Maria," running through my head as I read this? Anyway. I can't wait to read the encyclical if he does decide to begin work on it!

They have a/c ... but nobody uses it!

a/c in Italy? When did that happen? When I was in the ER during WYD in 2000 (long but very awesome story involving an asthma attack and an airlift), it was sweltering in the ER!

I've got friends that use a/c there. Perhaps it's a special form of mortification- like living in Oklahoma!
