The first thing I did upon arrival in Rome was visit the Colosseum.
It’s one of those places you have to see in both daylight and in the dark, and I think it was the loveliest at this moment in the darkness, mostly because there were no swarms of people, so there was nothing to distract from the greatness of the Colosseum.
Good choice! Seeing this photo mostly makes me think of the apples I bought right after visiting the Colosseum – they were huge and delicious-looking and I was starving…and then my bag broke and they rolled across several lanes of Roman traffic.
I laughed out loud when I read that, and then, of course, felt terrible immediately. Your story is quite unfortunate, knowing how much you like apples.
