... Colosseum towards closing time and had a fine old time climbing up and down many many stairs and ooohing and aaaahing. Im great on the up phase, but one of my knees is complaining a bit about going down. Hard to think up something original to say about the place. All the superlatives have been well used.

We all woke at about 2.30ish but managed to get back to sleep and wake at the more respectable 6am. Had breakfast - brought the vegemite :) and then went and had an awesome coffee. Walked to the Forum in 10 minutes and then spent the next three hours there as it was overcast and only 28 degrees.
