    It comes across.

    It is a woman grieving, but accepting her child's death for a higher purpose.

    Ya'll have suffered enough, here is the colliseum.




    Notice the roman numerals above the entrance. They marked the entrances much as we do today in modern arenas.

    It's impressive that the colliseum...er, coliseum...er, colosseum....er....Flavian amphitheater...is still standing after all this time, not to mention the attention Rome received from the Visigoths and others. We enjoyed walking around inside, but were very disappointed after we'd been there for 30 minutes and nary a single hot dog or beer vendor made the rounds.

    That's too bad, they were serving wolf nipple chips and otter's spleen when we were there. Very tasty.

    I hope you got to the Forum, as well.

    ("A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum ...." )

    Did you buy the wolf nipple chips from the Centurion or from the gladiator? When I was over there they were about to duke it out over who could park his chariot cart with the red hot dogs in pink water where.


    One of them was shouting "Veni, vedi, parki!" and waving his fist on the left and a sword on the right, but I can't remember who ...



    Wait, no, that was Times Square ...

    RIP Zero Mostel. He was a funny SOB. Peter Ustinov too. Now I need to rewatch both AFTHOTHWTTF and Viva Max.
