It was 2007 when I went on a school trip to Rome with one of my classes.
I had been in Rome several times before. And somehow I never thought the Colosseum might deserve a visit. So when we passed in front of it and my students asked me if we could visit it, I was skeptical, but why not?
The problem was the reservation, the tickets, and everything. But, heck! It’s Italy, right? Any rule has a suitable exception down here. So we got through.
After all it was worth a visit. One visit. Should the occasion arise again, I’ll probably pass. Unless in the meantime the Property Brothers come through for the mayor and develop an open concept with an electronic fireplace in it. That would surely be a good enough reason to get in a queue again for the Colosseum.
Ok, I’ve used the word “through” twice already (three if you count this same line, but I don’t think you should). But I didn’t mention that in the Colosseum you can see through the arches, and if the sky is blue, it’s a jolly good show.
And I think I am through with today’s challenge. Four! 🙂
