Layers from Italy and Germany
Layers of Black Forest Cake.
One of my favourite buildings and its layers
Inside, the layers are smaller…
…but more plentiful.
And the smaller layers create
the larger layers.
…that buildings like the Colosseum were constructed
nearly 2,000 years ago and are still largely intact.
And wile the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is talked of
on a regular basis, many other churches have similar,
though not as well-known,
art work on their ceilings also.
And while this is not the Duomo in Florence,
it has a similar hole in the roof.
I would love to return and spend a week or so
in many of European cities.
Although I do not have a photo to prove the fact,
I did see the Northern Lights in August 1976.
Not a very colourful display but my Canadians friends
assured me it was the northern lights.
In May the same year I visited Stonehenge also.
In 2016 I was able to add…
…the Colosseum to that list.
Just imagine also the feet which have walk across here.
In 2014 we were…
…fortunate enough to visit…
…the Victoria Falls.
out on the…
the colours often seen in movies/documentaries.
We were also told that a recent cyclone
had wrecked this section of the reef.
The comment left me wondering why we did not go
to another, more attractive part.
After revisiting these photos I think my thoughts were a bit harsh.
All of these places of sites can be found on
an ‘Ancient’, ‘Natural’ or ‘New’ Wonders of the World search.
I often wonder who lived here and why/when they moved.
The house was looking much like this
nearly fifteen years ago and only deteriorated.
Then the bulldozer moved in
to complete the demolition.
I often wonder what this was.
A public hall?
Or maybe a simple house?
Whatever it was I think it well beyond repair.
But if those walls could talk….
Now I am wondering was my post form yesterday
a premonition of sorts???
And I also find myself wondering how amazing
buildings of the magnitude of Dubai’s
Burj Khalifa are constructed.
Similar comments could be made about
the Colosseum, the Pyramids, Stonehenge, Great Wall of China,
just to name a few, of the ancient landmarks
many of us visit and are in awe of.
