We had a good long chat, those Roman Goldfishies and I. They quite enjoy life in a reflecting pool. Gives them ample opportunity to ruminate on the great philosophical questions of life. Things like; “what pizza topping should I have for lunch?”

But there were ancient ruins to see, so eventually I moved on, just in a calmer and more serene state of mind. Pizza topping of choice was parma ham with mushrooms. Would you like to know more?

In order to pay proper homage to Apollo, one must go to where can truly feel his presence! (I’m sure it doesn’t hurt if you’re slightly awed by the size of the doors either!)

Yes, we went back to the Pantheon during daylight hours. Partly in order to bear witness to his eternal passage across the sky, by following the sun spot on the dome. Would you like to know more?

Italy, Rome – Part 3

There is so much to see in Rome, that I’m just going to make a nice list of a few highlights for you. Is that ok?

First off we have the Alchemy Gate, which was conveniently just around the corner from the hotel, and right by the metro station! If you want to go and visit though, be aware that it isn’t in the most respectable area. There may have been syringes we spotted before making a hasty retreat!

This is one of the more picturesque photos I took of Rome. It was a random over-pass that we decided to walk up as we were heading home from the Colosseum one afternoon. Would you like to know more?

Just using this next photo, who can guess what one of our first scheduled tours in Rome was? Well, technically, not in Rome, but still in Rome …

Got it in one! The Vatican Museums. This sculpture of Isis & Horus is a part of their extensive Egyptian collection. Would you like to know more?
