When I saw floor was the theme
It has lasted a bit longer than most modern-day floors,
and according to Google this floor
is around 1,949 years old.
of the Colosseum.
Laid nearly 2,000 years ago…
I wonder will today’s floors last 100 years?
Anyone who has visited the Vatican
may have climbed the spiral step less staircase

However the entrance/exit to the Ruakuri Cave, at Waitomo,
makes the Vatican staircase look like a miniature.
We also visited the Giant Redwood Forest at Rotorua.

According to my tags this shot comes from

All guides were very knowledgeable but
sometimes it was just nice to walk and look
without the constant commentary.
Our favourite African guide,
planning the next day.
Or was he offering up thanks for
a successful day just ended?
