two great big WOWs this morning
That view is fantastic
and those carvings, how long did you stop and study them there is so much in there.

Rome's an incredible city isn't it. I've been 3 times and each time was unable to rid myself of the ridiculous thought; 'Whose idea was it to build an amazing building like the Colosseum so close to such a busy road?!'
