Resilient

Resilient is this week’s theme for the WordPress Photo Challenge.  What could be more resilient than Rome’s Coliseum which has withstood earthquakes, wars, empires, and millions of tourists for nearly 2000 years?  Built of concrete and sand, the Coliseum is the largest amphitheater ever built.  Ongoing renovations will keep this resilient relic around for future millenniums to cherish and marvel at. Travel safe.  Have fun. Advertisements

A Day in Rome

And then there was Rome.  Of all the places Kongo visited during his European trip last month, Rome was the city most anticipated.  Kongo always felt that if you haven’t been to Rome then you really haven’t been to Europe.  Not that other great cities on the continent he’d visited weren’t grand.  London, Paris, Prague, Vienna, Venice, Florence, Budapest.  Even Moscow.  But Rome?  Well, Rome is Rome.
