The two days in Rome flew by.  I managed to get a lot of pictures that should come in handy for classes and sermons.  The home of Augustus on Palatine Hill is now open. 

The colors that have survived give a new sense of how their homes really looked.  Sadly, the workers were very emphatic as they told people no pictures could be taken.  The picture I’ll post is ruins (apparently of Nero’s bridge) in the Tiber.
