... us looking for presents. Crossbows, swords and pictures or statues of St Frank abound. I hope I can get them all through customs in Australia. There were some tasteful things that we were able to get for some back home, just pray yours is not the bobbing head statue of St Frank or the Pope.

As it was after 2pm before we were up in the shopping area, we grabbed a pizza and drink then visited the Bascilica .... Absolutely beautiful.
