Ruins of Rome (just walking around)

From Palatine Hill to the ruins of the Coliseum and the Roman Forum right next door, if there's one thing Rome's got in spades, it's ruins. Everywhere you turn! It's a bit startling at first... but quickly becomes strangely familiar: seeing the antique and dilapidated and truly ancient, existing alongside modernity.

It's surreal, and a little magical, walking around Rome.

I did a bit of sketching but we spent so much time coming/going to museums that drawing came in a distant second-place to 'being a tourist.'
