    Getting off the 75 at the Piazza Venincia was so over whelming because I felt as if I am finally in Rome! Huge buildings over my head and just a splurge of history everywhere I turn. The Coliseum was at the end of the road and I could help but start taking pictures and feeling super excited. I mean the Coliseum is one of the best-preserved Roman architects and is basically the face of Rome. Being able to see the structure in front of me was over whelming and it felt unreal. I am so used to seeing pictures of the Coliseum, reading about it in books, and seeing it on T.V, but today I am standing right in front of it and I can physically touch it. Just looking at the Coliseum just made me feel even more blessed to be able to gain this experience. This is just so surreal that at times I have to keep reminding myself that I am in Rome and none of this is an illusion.

    June 24, 2013 @ the Pantheon

    She slowly walked through the roads of Italy and letting the cobblestones guide her to this magnificent building. Her and the group walked besides a building and she did not know what it was; all she could see was a brick wall and a dome like rooftop. As she walked down the road to get a little closer, the huge columns were just breath taking that she could not believe this structure is standing right before her eyes. She got closer to the front of the structure and as soon she got to the steps of the structure, she noticed that it was the Pantheon. She was just in total shock that words could not describe the feeling she was in and no words could come out of her mouth. She felt as if she was the only one standing in front of the Pantheon and everyone and everything was not there; just her and the Pantheon.
    The only word that she could describe the Pantheon is ‘majestic’. After being in such total shock. She slowly makes her way inside and before going in she noticed the huge columns that’s holding the front side of the structure. Her and the group met a kind lady name Susan who explained the details of the building, from the marble floors, to the design of the interior and up to the dome itself. All of the facts that Susan was telling her were keeping her so engaged and fascinated to how old the Pantheon is and how there is a reason for every stone and brick that keeps the symmetrical structure standing. From the inside out she was still amazed and as soon as she says farewell to Susan, she was just hungry for more information.

    People from every color found themselves walking on cobbled stone roads that leads them to open markets that sells art to belts, a church that showcases its intricate design and color that makes you feel like you have arrived to a Candyland Castle, and lets not forget about the Castle down the road with human body action sculptures posted right outside of it that acts as its characters in a fairytale book.
    People walking on the cobbled stone roads would find themselves dodging the traffic of other travelers. Cars would find themselves swimming on a road full of people. The purpose of the cobbled stone roads were nonexistence for the cars because everywhere you turn, a sea of people would walk through every direction to get to where they want to. Who uses the sidewalks now days?
