The Cherry Presents.........


So this was one of my fave things in Rome. I must have taken a hundred photos of this due to loving it so much! Let me know what you think!

Walking down the road. See the horses on the roof there in the distance? That's where I'm heading!

Ain't it fabulous?!?!

Check it out!


Some kind of marble statue thing on the edge of the stairs (I think!)

Carvings into the marble. Loves it!

Is that an orgy I see before me?

There were guards in front of this thing



Another horse!

That thing again

With the flags! Fabulous!


More poles

And more poles! All these poles are making me hungry, if you know what I mean...*wink wink nudge nudge*




Last one!

The Cherry Presents.......


Here for your viewing pleasure are just a few of my photos of Rome. There are quite a few but these, my friends, are but a drop in the ocean. You should see how many I actually took. In the end I kind of got sick of taking photos! Enough talk! Let's get straight into it, shall we?!?!

A picture of the Vatican taken from a bridge in from of the castle.

Walking up to the Vatican.

If I'm honest I was very disappointed with my pics taken of the Vatican solely because of the lighting. Obviously, I have learnt a valuable lesson and I pass on this information to you. Don't go at this time of day. Haul ass there in the morning, even midday. Just don't go with the sun like this because this is what happens!

The Vatican

As I walked up to the Vatican I was listening to some really phat and funky beats. I remember the one I was listening to as I approached this fabulous place was really make me funk out. It was a song about Mohammad Ali and it was saying 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee'. I really just wanted to stop right there and dance my ass off, but I had to settle for a bit of a dance / walk scenario. I'm sure it looks kinda funny to the untrained eye, but really there is an art to it.


Just to prove that I didn't get these pics of the internet and that I really was there. Self portrait. One of the downfalls of travelling alone: head shots only. Yes I could ask someone to take a pic but I hate people, strangers in particular, strange tourist even moreso. And when I cruise around alone I tend to get in the zone and just want to 'be' and not have to deal with other people. I know this makes me sound entirely deranged, but when did I claim to be otherwise?!?!?!

The Vatican
I did love the Vatican, but being the faithful Catholic that I am (oh stop laughing you bitches! Jin, I said STOP!) I had hoped for some sort of spiritual awakening or perhaps a rod of light (or rod of any kind would have done come to think of it) to envelope me and do whatever it is that rods of light do when they envelope peeps. Alas! I was left rodless and the spiritual awakening did not occur until about an hour later by way of Mojito. That was when I was joined by the lovely Lee and Jocelyn and that's when all the games began! Lee and I were fabulous friends in high school and Jocelyn is his gorgeous wife who is currently up the duff with their first child! I can't wait until the little munchkin's born! Lee and I consumed dangerous levels of alcohol over dinner and then walked back to the hotel using imaginary nordic walking sticks, whilst Joce captured the magical moments on camera. When I get these shots I shall post them!

I quite like this shot

This kind of an up close shot of the roof in the last. Check that out! AMAZING!!!

Stop and think about how packed this place would have been when the pope died? Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Uh huh! Packed like a black man's undies!

The guards. I hope they get paid danger money for wearing this sort of get up.

Fountain in front of the Vatican

The front of the Vatican

That fabulous part with the fantastic roof again. This time with the clock in it so I can always remember what time I was kickin' it at my main man's joint, the pope.

I'm loving this photo something chronic

The Vatican...again

The castle

Tres romantic!

So I was strolling along, took a wrong turn and ended up walking along this very picture-esque river. Tree lined with gorgeous bridges. Oh the romance just looking at these pictures kills me! *sigh*

Go the Doggies!

WTF?? I hear you all cry. I took this because my football team in Aus is the Bulldogs. hahaha! I'm obssessed!

Ancient stuff

Near the Coliseum

Pullin' out the big guns.....The Coliseum!

Ain't it something else?!?!?!?!


Fabulous nostril shot!

And again....

A church or something I think

Sorry I can't give you more info than that peeps. I'd have to look it up and I have no time for that no, frankly. Think yourselves lucky you're getting the pics! hahaha! Just kidding. I'm really not very well read as far as this Roma thing goes. But it has inspired moi to read more about history because it really is very fascinating.

A big pole with girth

And speaking of fascinating.....I know you think I just took pics of this pole because it's like a huge cock, but in actual fact I took this close up, not because of the girth, hell no! Check out the detail on that big mutha there! When you think of how old all of these things are the mind boggles! I'm flat out waking up in the morning let alone carving pretty pictures into stone and building churches and coliseums. Mama mia!

On the walk to the Coliseum. More ancient stuff and a church in the background. Pretty shot. And I took it all by myself! *pats self on back*

More ancient stuff and that.

Svetlana kisses Hogan Logan backstage at the Versace Winter Collection Show.

And here we are at the end of the presentation for Part One of the Roman Series. I hope you have all thoroughly enjoyed it! I leave you with this picture of two hawt mwardels (read hot models), Hogan Logan and Svetlana (our mwardel names) taken last July. The relevance? This was the last time I have seen this beautiful speciman of a human being and I think it was the last time I saw my toes too, I don't see them much nowadays due to excessive weight gain. I digress.....In just a few days time I shall be greeted in Dubai by Mama Cass (aka Paul). OMFG I totally cannot wait to see him!!!!! I'm practically squealing sitting here just thinking about it! It will be four days of fun, sun and laughter! Hoorah! All the things I love! When Hogan Logan and Svetlana get together hilarity ensues. In fact, I am killing myself laughing as I type. *high kick*

I suppose I had better start packing or something, huh?

Hello Little Cherubs!

The Usual Suspects: Soe, Lucio, Mimo, Gaetano & Allie
Ciao party peeps! I trust everyone had yet another fabulous weekend as did I! Here is an assortment of pics taken over the weekend. I have tried to post more but ye ole' blogger is back to doing what it does best! Jarring The Cherry up the clacker sideways. As a result this weekend's pictorial escapades will be posted in two lots. One today and, all going well, one tomorrow! I know I was going to present to you Rome as well as Pisa & Lucca, and I will but you'll just have to wait!

This cake was divine!

I think the the pics of tomorrow will be better than today's, but there's nothing I can do about it. Nevertheless allow me to enlighten you as to what went down.....On Friday night I picked Allie up from the train station then armed with all the necessities, namely booze, cigarettes and a chip on our shoulders. I think the latter was due to exhaustion, but it was there nonetheless. So we sat in our usual positions on the step in the garden and caught up. We were also drinking quite quickly which made Allie pipe up and say that if we didn't calm it down we wouldn't see 8 o'clock. Well we stayed up long enough to watch Bridget Jones' Diary, dance a very merry jig to Van Morrison and then crashed at 10.30. Woohoo! Huge night in!

Soe and Lucio

Unfortunately, due to my early night I missed out on a ren dez vous with the delightful Plan B, but I did wake up early enough to go for breakfast with Gaetano. We ate and then went to walk in the park and we were pleasantly surprised to find the bar open so we ate icecream. There's something cool about eating icecream at 7am. I think it's called fatso whale status here I come.

Spicy Italian sausage anyone?

Saturday night was the BBQ night at Soe and Lucio's. As always tops fun! Eating, drinking, dancing, hilarity, talk of sex, a sprinkling of nudity and sausage sucking! As you can see the pic above shows a bit of the sausage scenario. Tomorrow I'll be posting a pic of the star of the BBQ and by star I mean Lucio's ass which he likes flashing around just for the hell of it. It's getting to the stage where it's a surprise not to see his ass.

Unless you want the place burnt down don't let me cook pasta

The above picture shows an oven mit that came off second best whilst I was trying to cook some pasta for Allie. I was trying to get the damn pasta to go into the pot (it was long stuff) and the handle was hot. So I got the mit, put it on and perservered with trying to get the pasta in. Then I smelt a funny smell and thought it was the pasta leaning against the hot pot. A few seconds later flames! After some quick action of water to flame, I laughed my head off and waved the old white flag to signal to Allie that I was giving up.

Need a hand? A statue in the park

On Sunday I watched DVD's all day long at Allie's place and then came home with enough time to do a quick tidy up before the gorgeous Plan B came over for a bit of lovin'. I chilled a bottle of wine that I bought in Chianti, bought a tiramisu and got the DVD's ready. Not porn, just ordinary movies. Spicy Italian sausage two days in a row! Fabulous!

Hello turtle!

This is a pic taken of a turtle swimming around in the lake in the park. Cute!

Just hanging, Euro Trash Style

Here's a picture of me just kickin' it in the park at that crack of dawn, pre ice cream eating.

Please see the other post for more pics!

Peace out!
