The Roman Forum
The Roman Forum was for centuries the center of Roman public life, the site of triumphal processions and elections; the venue for public speeches, criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches; and the nucleus of commercial affairs. (Wikipedia)
Aisle’s Travel Theme this week is Belonging. While visiting the Roman Forum last month, I came across a feline character with a strong sense of belonging. While I snapped a few photos of him, he didn’t leave his spot and stared at me as if to say: “These are my digs. I belong here; you don’t.” I had no doubt that was the case…
There he is, sitting comfortably, minding his own business.
As I approach, he looks away, visibly annoyed.
Gets up to get away from the lenses.
But doesn’t leave. Instead, gets up to a higher location.
And confronts me.
Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Arches. Having just finished a trip to Italy, I have plenty of those to share. Here are some of them.
Pompeii, Italy. Mount Vesuvius in the background.
The Colosseum, Rome, Italy.
Arch of Titus. Roman Forum, Rome.
