After a train ride most of the way

up Lucerne’s Mt. Rigi…

 

…there was still a steep ascent/descent

to attain its summit and return.

In my pre-teen years,

a fireman I never wanted to be,

I wanted to be an archeologist.

So when  Pompeii was on our itinerary,

it would have taken a deluge

akin to the one that hit New York this week…

…to stop me from walking around the Pompeii ruins.

 

I think imminent wet weather may have

curtailed our guided tour

However, the worst of the rain held off

until we completed our inspection.

It’s a world of laughter

 

A world of tears

It’s a world of hopes

 

And a world of fears

 

 

There’s so much that we share

 

 

That it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all

 

 

It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small, small world

 

There is just one moon

 

And one golden sun



And a smile means
Friendship to ev’ryone

 


Though the mountains divide

 


And the oceans are wide
It’s a small world after all

 

It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small, small world

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

old

made or built long ago
 
~~~~~

 

Construction of the Palace of Versailles began in 1661

some 55 years after Willem Janszoon first sighted

Australia and just over 109 years before

Captain Cook landed at Botany Bay.

 

Older still is the

Schönbrunn Palace

construction of which

commenced in 1642

The oldest of this post is

The Colosseum.

Construction of The Colosseum

began in 70AD and was completed in 80 AD

Which in 2021 makes

The Colosseum

1950 years old

since completion

We were told, these pavers,

are part of the original building. 

Imagine, nearly 2,000 years since completion,

the sheer number of feet to have walked over them

and who, in history may have walked here.

The  Colosseum is definitely my oldest building

in my old, older, oldest post this week.

A back road near Geelong

with a beautiful view.

***

Not a Botswana back road,

however with wandering livestock,

it could be a back road

We travelled over this road for several hours

before reaching the salt lake.

 

Greater Kruger National Park…

…provided a variety of tracks/roads

and many wandering wildlife.

 

This Kruger National Park road

may pass for a back road,

but it isn’t and that maybe that is

why the hyenas used it.
