Colosseum

We arrived in Rome late at night so we walked down to see the Colosseum.  Chris and Sarah had been there before; I had only seen it from a bus when we were there years ago.  It was beautiful to see it lit up at night.

The moon was just peeking over the top of the structure.

While we were there a lot of security trucks and media started coming into the area.  We realized that the Pope was coming the next day, which was Good Friday, and that we were seeing the preparation of his visit.  At any rate, it was truly a beautiful site to see the colosseum on a clear night like this.
