Rome, Italy, Part 1

After a good night sleep, we went to visit Roma. We walked all day, but spent most of our time in the Palatino and the Colosseo. The area of the Palatino is pretty big and it is full of ruins, mostly palaces and church like buildings. There are also a few arches that are still standing. The Colosseo is huge, they could fit between 50 000 and 70 000 spectators. It is truly amazing to see old buildings like that still standing. Today’s architects should probably revise their notes on how to build durable infrastructure… Rome is a pretty city. At moments it feels crowded, but it is probably because Italians are used to bumping into each other. Everybody seems to think that they have the right of passage all the time, on the sidewalk, in the street, in line… anything really! We have to adjust and get in the traffic as well.
