Second day in Rome we went to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum! Way cool.
Besides telling us great facts about how and why the Colosseum was used, we got an account of how the movie 'Gladiator' did NOT depict the way it really was. Shocking, I know. And the letters S.P.Q.R. are everywhere!!!! On the sidewalks, street signs, buildings. It basically stands for, the Senate and People of Rome.
Next we went to the Roman Forum. It was the center of all Political goings-on during the time. Not a lot left of it. I have a secret wish to be transported back into that time and observe how it all worked.
