| Margaret and I walked to the Forum almost our first evening.
|| There's not a lot of street greenery in Rome. But poppies flourish eveywhere.
|| At that time, peole strolled quietly in the ruins.
|| We didn't know what everything was.
|| Nor did it matter. This is the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina, apparently.
|| But I have no idea what this is.
| We could admire the place
|| and the fallen tabula
|| and enjoy its grandiosity
|| This is the arch of Septemius Severus
|| who takes slaves
|| and I think this is the remains of the Temple of Saturn in the background
| I KNOW this is the interior of the Curia
|| and this is the view from its doorstep
|| Looking down from the Capitoline
|| You get a different view, looking right
|| looking left
|| They were good at cementing stones together
