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.

Two years later we visited

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

 

in 2016 during a European holiday…

…a visit to the Colosseum was on the agenda.

A landscape or the result of landscaping?

Many South West Victorian farms have

changed their landscape from one

which grazed sheep and cattle to one

which grows trees and is far less intensive.

A little over 100 years ago this idyllic

French landscape would have appeared

anything but idyllic as Villers Bretonneux

was in the middle of some of the

heaviest fighting of World War I.

As the sun goes down…

…near Geelong.
