Mrs. Roosevelt, I also loved the Raphael Loggias; couldn't get a good picture that reflected true color. Suffice to say, they were spectacular and either an exact copy or in the spirit of the Raphael Loggias in the Vatican, which I can't recall? bit of a puzzle there...

my Lord, All of it was such a tremendous experience in such widely different ways. We were slapping our jaw even at the last hour we were there. (We actually were waiting for our flight and decided to go back out of the secured area to the bathroom. We came back and got in line to go through security again and they waved us through, saying, you're fine. you already passed. ! )
