That was a short information about St. John Basilica.
When i was visited the St. John Basilica, i was working as a translator in the same time. And it was raining. It wasn’t easy to visit while it’s raining.I couldn’t take pictures much. Before you visit there, make a plan. Look at the weather. 🙂
I was listening to guider, try to translate and trying to take pictures under the rain in the same time. And i have got many questions too.
