So silly! The Vatican - a religious institution, pretending to be a "state" with a military presence.

Love the photo, though! Colorful, if kind of "girly" uniform!

That is a stunning photo! And you were there this month? I'm so jealous! Also jealous because my only photos of the Swiss guard are out of focus or someone is in front of the guard. This is excellent!

Just like the horseguards, I'd like to tickle them. At least, that's what I wanted to do when I went to San Pietro.

Haha, I'd like to see what they do to Ciel if she tickles them!
I've always wanted to see the famed Swiss Guard.
This photo with the light and the spiky door is great.
