Essay From Yvonne
July 8, 2003 Yvonne sent her latest essay. This letter was written two weeks ago, but due to the lack of Internet cafes since Italy (and email service in Austria) she is only now sending it-- via the Blackberry.
My second favorite place in the palace was the staircase with the painting of Saint John the Baptist over it (by Titian). The painting was of Saint John in a rushing stream with a child on his shoulder. Saint John had a stick in his hand and was battling across the stream. His features of his body were so emphasized he looked not human. The painting was the sort of painting that you can sit at and look at and stay there forever.
All in all I loved every room but these two will last in my memory forever. Yvonne Sent via BlackBerry
