Journeys: Roma

“The lands of other peoples have fixed boundaries: but the extent of the city of Rome is equal to the world itself” – Ovid, Fasti, 2, 683-684 I read that in the Colosseum. First thoughts upon reading it: “woah, Rome…we get it. You’re awe-inspiring and timeless…and how did anyone even build anything so big around two thousand years ago?”
