Dianne in rome

This is one of the better trips my wife has taken. She is professor of English Literature at Tidewater Community College and uses mulimedia she gathers from her trips to enhance the learning experience of her students. She makes videos for the students at the various locations she travels to and gives a small tutorial on different important artifacts.

This is a small artists' studio off to the side of the Trevi Fountain.

Trevi Fountain. The Trevi Fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in Rome.

This is a close up picture of the "Ganges River" from the Fountain of the Four Rivers.

This is the Colosseum; It is a ruin now, but in its time it held 55,000 spectators.

My wife took this from a bus; I think they have plans to rebuild the Colusseum so the Yankees have a place to play in Europe.

Rome is always crowded; be prepared to constantly have you space invaded by any number of worldly un-deodorized cultures.

This is another picture of the Fountain of the Four Rivers. The statue depicting the Nile has a cloth over his head; at the time this fountain was built, it was not known where the Nile begain; hence the cloth, representing the unknown.
