Project 365: Day 290 – July 15, 2013

July 15

My cousins and I took a day trip to Rome today. The last time I actually went to Rome to sight-see was when I was 10 or 11 so it had been a really long time. We walked all over Rome and saw everything from the Spanish Steps to Saint Peter’s. You don’t have an appreciation for things when you’re young so it was really a different experience for me seeing it at 30. It was far more impressive this year and you realize just how beautiful Rome really is.

There was talk about rebuilding the Colosseum so that it looked like it did when it was originally built. I’m a bit torn over that as the building as it stands now carries with it history but it would be interesting to see it as it was originally meant to be. In the end, they probably wont do anything to it since the money is a bit lacking and honestly…I’m glad.
