Swiss Guard

August 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

This is the Swiss Guard, one of the most well-trained and fearless police forces in the entire world (as evidenced by their everyday attire). There are 140 of them and they guard the Vatican. They’re also trained in every weapon imaginable, including swords which they carry at all times, and which have been passed down since the Crusades (definitely been used to behead people at some point). We passed by one of them carrying a leather briefcase up a flight of stairs. Seriously one of the most intense things I’ve ever seen.
