Rome: Colosseum

The Next day we visited the Colosseum. It was amazing. I had only seen it on postcards and pictures in travel books, so I was not expecting how massive it was. It took about 10 years to complete, which is incredible considering that back then the builders only had cement and stone to build it. We had planned to leave the apartment by 9, but being the Speedy Herd of Turtles, (cleverly named my my Auntie Jane, although I don't like being referred to as a turtle- I'm very afraid of those creatures) we arrived there around 11:30 -ish. We met the Laferrieres and entered the giant gladiator arena.
