Gian Lorenzo Bernini created an unpreviousd masterpiece for  Cardinal Scipione Borghese depicting the chaste nymph Daphne being  turned into a laurel tree, pursued in vain by Apollo god of light. 										 										          This life-size marble sculpture, begun by Bernini at the age of  twenty-four and executed between 1622 and 1625, has always been housed  in the same villa, but originally stood on a lower and narrower base set  against the wall near the stairs. Consequently anyone entering the room  first saw Apollo from behind, then the fleeing nymph appeared in the  process of metamorphosis: brak covers most of her body, but according to  Ovid’s lines, Apollo’s hand can still feel her heart beating beneath  it.Thus the scene ends by Daphne being transformed into a laurel tree to  escape her divine aggressor.

When traveling abroad, a credit card offers a convenient way to purchase meals and merchandise, and minimizes the need to carry cash or exchange U.S. currency. If you are abroad and cash is stolen, it may be impossible to have it replaced or found. However, if your credit card is lost or stolen, one call to the card issuer cancels the card and protects you from being liable for fraudulent purchases. Traveler’s checks, while replaceable if stolen, are exchanged for cash when a purchase is made, making them less secure than a credit card.
