I ran around the National Museum of Rome with my camera here for a while until people started yelling “no video” at me…. I’ll make sure to update this entry later on with a photo gallery of what I saw there.
This is one of the best aquariums I have experienced…. The rays would come to the surface to be petted.
My trip was delayed into the middle of the high tourist season, so I didn’t bother going to the Eiffel Tower or to the Louvre. I just walked around the city, had lunch, and then caught the train to London.
The Notre Dame in Paris is one of those places that you’re really supposed to see, so I did.
Altare della Patria and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was huge and imposing. The view from atop it was also pretty impressive as it is one of the tallest buildings nearby.
Throw back a bottle of beer.Well when in Rome, do as the Romans do and freak out for a solid week if the home team wins, apparently.Rome won the all-Italy contest in the worlds favorite sport…. It was pretty much constant freakout for the first couple of days and then at night nonstop horn honking until I left town.
Some of the ruins of the Roman Forum.
Visiting various fountains in Rome. These marvels of ancient craftsmanship (and modern maintenance to keep them functioning and in one piece) are quite amazing.If I’m not mistaken, Cleopatra’s needle is also featured in one of the fountains.
Here is an assortment of clips of me just randomly walking around Rome. I thought that it was interesting to see how people walked around everywhere, the people you see and what they’re doing, and how amazing antiquity is intermixed in everyday life.
