Cimitero Vecchio

the false teeth are rather shocking against those bones. i feel sort of sad for the broken sacred heart statue just leaning against the wall! (have you toured the capuchin monastery in rome, the one decorated grandly in skulls and bones of deceased monks? it's a trip for someone raised in the US, with its aversion to signs of physical death.)

A fellow American ex-pat who lives in Rome has gotten me to agree to come as soon as Fahrenheit 9/11 shows up at a theater, so we can watch it together. I guess I should put the capuchin monastery on my image-making itinerary!
