Wasting Time At The Roman Colosseum

Stealing lines from a Bob Dylan song, time to go dodge some lions. And we can hardly stand to see 'em.

Putting the colossus in Colosseum.

Ready to see it? Just make sure you get your picture - "I was witness!"

The place doesn't disappoint, even sans floor and a bunch of the upper sections. And the canvas top. People - about 50,000. Some lions. Bears. Human and other flesh being ripped. Still, it doesn't disappoint.

The lone section still with marble seating. Quite an understage area.

A triumph of brick arch work.

Impressive exterior and happy tourist.

One last look....
