A little further north, these views of paradise become more like purgatory as the road crosses the Po Valley. Between Pavia and Santhià, rice fields extend for as far as the eye can see, offering an “extremely monotonous landscape with very straight lines.” The heat and stagnant water in the rice fields attract “lots of mosquitoes,” Vincent recalls. These days were “a great test of patience,” he adds.
Amen to that.

going on foot to rome and returning back home after service is not so uncommon amongst swiss guards. I've met another just two months later, also going home.

What a beautiful, beautiful article this is! This quote from it especially resonates with me:

"“I had to learn to let go of the itinerary, to stop making calculations and to stop worrying,”

thanks for posting this, BC SY
