Where it ALL began, many, many years ago in Rome!

Scenes of the Palatine Hill (one of Rome’s seven famous hills) and where the emperors used to have their palaces (and from that area we have words such as “palace”, “palacio”, “palais”, etc.) and the Roman Forum, with the adjoining Coliseum. 

Indeed a pity that many tourists though use the Roman Forum as a picnic area (they sit on the ruins and eat their sandwiches)!   Heaven forbid if someone were to do the same thing on JFK’s tomb at the Arlington cemetery…
