November 18, 2006: Italy Pictures

Many, many pictures were taken. Here are a couple of the neatest:

Etruscan Chimera The Chimera of Arezzo, in the Fiorenze museum of archaeology. This is one of the most famous pieces of Etruscan bronze statuary. Note that this is not the way that modern fantasy games usually depict the three-headed creature. Here, the serpent head is at the end of its tail, and the goat head springs from the middle of its back.

Cathedral Part of the facade of the Cathedral of Fiorenze. I climbed to the top of the cupola . . . 400+ steps through winding staircases that seemed more like something you'd find underground . . . except when I passed a window!
