It makes one feel very small, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I do understand what you mean, Lisl.
It's interesting that you have this up today, Ayush, because Astrid and I are thinking about driving through Italy next year, with this cathedral as one of the stops along the way. YAY.
Ayush Basu: I am quite sure you will have one memorable car drive, Ginnie.
Une ville magnifique, et superbe façade.
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: I am pleased this view turned out this way, Pascale.

Did you climb to the top of the dome Ayush, it is a wonderful trip and shows how such a vast covering could be accomplished.
Ayush Basu: I did go up the tower, Chad. I have to admit that the Firenze Duomo is at the top of my memories from Firenze.

Buildings don't come much magnificent than this.

Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Peter. I am pleased I got this.
