The statue is pretty impressive and you can basically see him from anywhere in the city. I also thought that this photo was significant because it is the 1000th picture that we have taken since we got here. If you think I've been a little overzealous with all the photos on this blog just think about how bad it could be.
The city from up there looks beautiful. Our camera didn't do it justice.
When we came out of the bottleneck there were a bunch of people with their cameras out. Someone asked if she could get a picture with our kids and I thought it would be fine. The problem that I hadn't anticipated was that once one person got a picture there were five more that wanted one, and then five more after that. We were stuck there for 15 minutes while the girls were hugged, held, and photographed. At first they were a little hesitant but then they got more into it. Someone gave Rocky a packet of wafer cookies just for being so cute. I wonder how they'll feel when they go back to the U.S. and nobody but their mom wants photos of them.
