Il Colosseo - Roma pt2
The perks of purchasing a Roma Pass!
We were able to cut through the lines and enter in a jiffy!
The stairs up to the viewing area. I think there was a lift somewhere but no time to spare.
Next to the shop were these,
Immensely overwhelming. This place is chock-full of people.
View from the inside,
Finally reached the area with the balcony, a little description on the Colosseum.
Marvelous view from the balcony:
Nice quiet arches and passages,
Some portion of the Colosseum is actually barricaded..
A little souvenir I got for myself..
Eversince my trip to the Grand Canyon some 9 years ago, I started a little rock collection! :D
I don't always find a nice rock to bring home, but I got one each from the Colosseum and the Palatine. X3 shh~ don't tell on me!
Some random photos from inside:
Me with my sis (She doesn't want me to post her photos.XD )
Setting up self-timer is sooo easy. XD I like to use it. But I think I should be more careful. :O When I did that in Madrid someone actually approached us to warn us about thieves.. BUT! where I live is actually worse.XD (Here, flashing a mere camera phone in public is asking for trouble! though in a well-off neighbourhood it's not so much the case.)
From my sister's camera! (they're mostly photos of myself.XP)
There were soooo many tourists. I just picked the ones without too much people.
Lovely view~~ I over-sharpened this one...=_= but I'm too lazy to change it now..
Here was the other gif I was talking about...
Thanks to boredom I made another one... :P
Looks ancient, eh?
