The Colloseum

It was so weird to imagine that at one point in time the Colloseum was packed with as many as 50,000 guests from all over the world. When I was walking thought the ruins I noticed that the layout was almost exactly like a modern stadium, it made me think about how similar aspects of life were while others seem almost alien in comparison to life in 2011. It’s an intense experience to walk on the same roads that were used over 2,000 years ago, to image how powerful the Roman Empire once was. It really makes you think about how young our country is, and how important it is to remain humble.
