Ravelling In Ravello

Dear Jesus Lover,

The Lord apologises for his slight blogging hiatus. There has been a tragedy in his church mice colony and Wheeze & Squeak were given time off to cope with this.

 

Jesus is continuing his SFA at the Amalfi Coast. Today, Claudio took him to Ravello. He will be visiting the musical stage and 2 of the main villas there.

 

“Children – listen to me preach!”

The Lord loves Ravello, a favourite haunt for similar legends of biblical proportions for example the late Greta Garbo, Tennesse Williams and Sara Teasdale. The Ravello Festival when the musical geniuses gather, started in remembrance of  Richard Wagner, the tickets attract a heafty sum annually. The let The Messiah take stage despite being slightly tone deaf.

He then hopped skipped and jumped in Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone where there horizon meets the sea.

Standard tourist shot – a must!

In the courtyard before walking on the Judas tree lined walkway. Trust Judas to want to steal the limelight!

The Lord really enjoyed his time in Ravello. He enjoys spending time with the musicians who love GREENERY as an inspiration for good music!

Rock On,

Take Me To Amalfi

Dear Jesus Lover,

The Lord is done with these city folk (ie. american tourist) and is heading off to the Amalfi Coast. Like a true Italian; he does not want to spend summer in the city!

“Trenitalia Eurostar – free snacks to those in first class”

Claudio the driver – manoeuvred the hairpin turns of Amalfi like a pro.

(Jesus still couldn’t help himself but backseat drive)

True SFA

Jesus wants to remind all his readers that whale watching should only be done out at sea. He smites those that spoilt the scenery by making him “beach whale watch” instead.

Rock On,

The Smite-ing Ground

Dear Jesus Lover,

The Lord is headed in his Prada toga to the Colosseum. A place where everything and anything was done in the name of a good time.

 

” When is the venation*

“All the stray lambs that I need to lead to slaughter”

The Messiah was disappointed at the lack of bloodshed on the day. Gone are the good ‘ol times of reenactment and unnecessary death – damn these public liability laws and common decency!

Rock On,

* venatio = animal hunt

Viewing The Patheon Without My Pantalons!

Dear Jesus Lover,

The Lord’s time in Rome is coming to a close. He has another 2 icons to visit – The Patheon and The Colosseum.  Today, he picks the Patheon, one of ancient Rome’s most well preserved buildings. Well preserved, just like The Messiah.

Time to visit royalty and the artistic, unlike me they cannot resurrect!

Asian tourist – cheapies who visit the “free entry” sites.

After a quick wave to Rapheal’s grave, The Messiah hit the streets of Rome for a quick check on one of his lesser known house.

No one there – he will smite those who pissed on the steps and left Him an empty bottle!

Spanish steps in Italy?

Rock On,

Leaving The Past

Dear Jesus Lover,

The Lord has realised that he has spent a large proportion (he likes large proportions) of his time living in the past. Today he decides to shake it up, visiting an exhibit from Testino.

Have to admire a man who can get models to drop their clothes in a second and get into every position you ask them.

Jesus’s suspicion was put to a rest – Kate Moss leaves a bush!

He is of biblical proportions – no one said he was large.

The Lord then decided to do some conspicuous consumption of leather goods. The italians sure provide good skin.  He finished off his day visiting Farnesina, keeping in with the contemporary theme.

Removing the need for his disciples to wash his feet. Its a democracy.

Rock On,

Romping in Villa Borghese

Dear Jesus Lover,

thank fuck the business part of the trip is out of the way. After a few weeks in Italy, Jesus has soaked up a lot of the Dolce Vita culture. He starts his day like any self-respecting Roman with a Maranchino at the bar. Cheaper than chips or the Australian $3.00 per coffee.

 

The Lord loved their matchy outfits and the view at his eye-level!!

After a great start to his morning enjoying his coffee and biscotti, The Lord headed to Villa Borghese. He will never forgive Pope Paul V for letting his nephew turn this once vineyard into a park! The blasphemy.

This could have been an alcoholic fountain. Clear disappointment.

Squeak took Jesus on a joyride so he can feel the wind through his beard and watch the passerbys.

When in Rome do as the romans do – wear a toga and have slaves to do your dirty.

He enjoyed his day doing Sweet Fuck All. He finished of his night with a decision to dine in.

Just how he likes it – abundant, cheap and quick.

Rock On,

Wheeze & SQueak
