The Castle Of Angle, better be known as Castel Sant'Angelo takes its name from an old legend dating to the worst days of the Dark Ages. At the end of the sixth century AD, after Rome’s fall but still centuries before its Renaissance rebirth, a terrible plague fell upon the city. With thousands falling ill and the bodies of the dead choking the streets, Pope Gregory the Great led a procession through the city, praying to God 🙏 to spare those who still lived.
Looking up to the old mausoleum of emperor Hadrian, long fallen into disuse and ruin, Pope Gregory had a vision of a radiant figure high atop the massive tomb. It was an angel 👼 , glowing brightly and brandishing a sword 🗡 , as the pope watched, the angel lowered his weapon and returned it to its sheath. The meaning was clear: the plague was over and God’s wrath had been put to rest.

Un "Self portrait" prima de arivá a termini...
My two days in #AngkorWat were probably the most strategically planned 2 days of any holiday ever. I was that determined to avoid elbows in my ribs while there, and did so rather successfully.
The morning of the second day was spent in solitude with the temples of the larger #AngkorThom area. Ancient rubble in all forms- fallen pillars, moss-consumed pyramids and the quintessential Khmer temples dominated by gnarling roots, was connected by uneven trails. I languorously walked these trails and ended at the Preah Ponlea Sdach Komlong (Terrace Of The Leper King), an excerpt of which you see here.
