Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

A story of – Descent.

I have just returned from Rome, and a trip back in history to the once lively old seaport of Rome, Ostia Antica. This was ”the mouth” of the River Tiber, but due to silting it now lies 3 kilometres from the sea. The theatre, once double the hight of these remains – is still, today, a beauty. Three hours of walking through the whole area of magnificently preserved buildings with frescoes and mosaics, listening to birds singing and the old stones telling their silent story – is time well spent.

  1. We never went to Ostia – we hadn’t seen nearly enough of Rome itself. And we knew it was always likely we could never return. Whereas you Europeans ! – lucky bastards ! [grin]
