Just like on my second day here in Rome, my wanderings today took me past the most famous of ruins. Well, they wouldn't have, but I took a detour so they would. It's already blasphemy (I'm told) that I didn't and won't take an inside tour of the Colosseum and the Foro Romano and the Colle Palatino. To make up for that I decided to walk past them again and have another look:
Sorry, but I just don't want to go in there. I've seen tons of ruins in my life - especially Roman ones - and while I know they all can't really be compared, it's still enough for me. When I spend money and, more importantly, time on a museum of any kind, it has to be something that's truly interesting to me, personally. Like Warhol and da Vinci.
As always: deal with it!
