corner view, "White"



Last Sunday was a hot day in Rome; but some museums were free, and it has been ages since I visited the Colosseum for the last time. Yes, it must has been a long time...or the hot weather; but all those stairs to reach the top of the monument, left me without breath, and not only for the beauty of it and the things I saw!
These are some pics I took while sitting here and there to catch some breath: Giulia, Titus daughter, A modern sculpture featuring a little girl, and a modern roman bride.

Hey! Rome is like an onion because it has so many layers. Not just in terms of what Rome has to offer but actually physically too. You dig down into that earth and oh boy do you find some interesting things beneath. I did a two week archeology tour a couple of years ago and we went down into basements and under modern buildings and it is all there - it has just been build upon....so much history.
