Not sure what these were supposed to be (part of a fire pit?), but he was really going to town on them.
What does it take to get arrested around here?
This guy was like a slightly disturbing Paul Newman. I put money in his cup and he waved me over and motioned me to sit down next to him. He handed me his pistol, looked into my eyes and said, "Shoot me, lady." So I did.
These were some ruins that have now been turned into a cat sanctuary. I couldn't figure out why we hadn't seen any cats around, and then we came to the Area Sacre. Apparently, a local animal society catches the strays, vaccinates and sterilizes them, and turns them loose in the ruins. We saw about 15 cats in there, and I gotta say, great for them but a little creepy for me. Pet Semetary, anyone? Sadly, it doesn't always work out for the furry friends either.
Whoever made that sign was pretty attached to this particular feline (click 'em to big 'em). I mean, I love cats too, but I just can't eat a whole one by myself.
This is quite possibly the largest foot I have ever seen, not counting our muu-muu wearing client who has gout.
A portion of a horse and rider in the Colosseum. Hopefully this statue was broken along the way. Otherwise, that's a pretty tragic accident to memorialize in stone. "Look, Billy, this is the famous soldier and horse who got hacked into pieces on the battlefield."
The inside of the Colosseum, where contrary to popular belief, few Christians were actually martyred. Crocodiles and bears, on the other hand, were getting their animals butts hauled out of the depths to go postal on one another on a regular basis.
Am I the only one who did not know there were trees like this in Italy? I really need to get out more.
Ya know how everyone always talks about the hot Italian guys? I firmly believe it is an urban legend. Most of the men we saw looked like Marlon Brando in his later years. And just when there was an exception, I had to start praying he was just really secure in his masculinity.
Please let that be his girlfriend's scooter.
The hobbit house along the Appian Way. I would so live there.
That's it, folks! You have suffered enough. I did not find my mother an Italian stallion, so the quest was a failure. The slides are now over. Can someone turn on the lights?
