Day 24 – Friday 1 July 1994 – Vatican City!

Incredibly hot night. Airless in room.  Headed off to the Vatican City after changing rooms to a smaller, not so nice but hopefully cooler and quieter room with a small bathroom that costs more.

Tried to ring Mum and Dad a few times.  Not answering. Saw the Vatican City in very hot conditions.  Very nice.  Shouldn’t have bothered with the Louvre.

Staggered back to the hotel in extreme heat.  Then went out to ring Mum and Dad. Monique answered.  They left this morning, not tomorrow. Very upset as Monique told me that Mum has been sick for 2 months and thought she might have had cancer.  She only got the all clear on Wednesday. All this time that we had been talking by phone she might not have even been coming over.  Lucky all OK.  Hope she is feeling better. In the air somewhere.

Walked to see the Colosseum after a snooze. Got lost on the way back.

Then went for dinner at Insalata again.  Very nice.  Goulash and salad.
