Hello again!

I thought I had uploaded and posted all these pictures last weekend after I got back from the trip I took them on, but I guess I forgot!  On saturday we took a bus to Volubilis, which is the ruins of what was once the southwest corner of the roman empire.  I swear to god i’ve posted this before.  Anyay:

This is the main drag through the center of town.  At one point this city was home to about 20,000 people.  The grey stripe is some of the remnants of the sewage/plumbing system for the city.

This is an example of the mosaic floors that are all over the ruins.  Aparently most of them have been restored.

Detail of another mosaic floor.  I think this is supposed to be herculese.

This is the inside of some rich-ass roman’s house. This is the pond in the central courtyard.

Same house.

This is me in front of the main arch into the city.  It’s huge!!

Another group shot!  I swear it’s the forced perspective that makes me look gigantic. The guy on my right is at least as large as me in real life.  Also my head is not as big as anybody’s torso.

 

OK! that’s it for now! I’ll try to post pictures from the rest of the trip tonight or tomorrow, but for now I’m getting thrown off the internet.
