Rome (If You Want To) [Sep. 4th, 2007|01:53 am]

I promised myself (and sully_for_prez) I wouldn't forget my camera when I went back to Rome. I didn't... but I left it in the hotel room. So I had to use my crappy fon camera. I had fun, though.

And now, some assorted monuments and ruins.


This is the Trevi Fountain.

Look how many people were there!

Souvenir shop, where I failed to buy pictures of THE POPE for givethesignal.

This guy's face cracked me up.

Walking across a bridge, with lots of markets and people on both sides.

Granted, the place where all those people are standing is REALLY beautiful. I bought a postcard of it, and commented to my friends with me that there were hardly any people in the picture. It's that fountain that you HAVE to throw a coin into if you visit Rome (and then you'll visit Rome again, or marry an Italian, or something like that).

This month is looking pretty sweet. =) I was bitter all August because it was Saudi, Saudi, Kuwait, Syria, Saudi, and more Saudi (though I did get 36 hours in Sri Lanka and 24 in Entebbe, about which I couldn't complain).

But September! September for me is Rome, then Germany, then Athens, then Moscow, then Osaka, then Tanzania! Outragous!

One popular activity here, and one that has kept us occupied and confused for several days now, is examining the seemingly unending Roman ruins which cover a huge section of town and pop up here and there all across the city. By comparing the busted columns and remains of buildings with maps and artists’ conceptions of ancient Rome, you can gradually get a sense of what the city looked like 2,000 years ago. My impression after considering the matter for some time is that the Imperial City must have looked like the set of Spartacus.

That drooling fountain is freaking me out. Zombie Fountain.

Trevi Fountain

I was in Rome with a girlfriend in 1969. The Trevi Fountain had been drained for some maintenance, but we went ahead and threw in some groschen left over from our previous stop in Vienna. I haven't been back, and I didn't marry an Italian, so I guess there has to be water in it for it to work! Mom

With the water coming out of the face it makes it look like a drooling zombie.

I think they are wonderful images, even taken with a cell phone.

Someday I am gonna invent a REAL NICE CAMERA with a shitty phone in it.
