My 3GSM conference was cut short by an unplanned trip to Rome. What was going to be a short 24h stay turned into a weekend long visit as my friend and travel buddy took ill with influenza. While he stayed locked up in a hotel room for 4 days straight, I had a chance to visit the Colosseum on Sunday evening.
It had been over 15 years since I had toured Rome as previous business trips had not afforded me any spare time. What a city, so full of history - breathtaking. (and packed w/ tourists, myself included, even in the middle of winter).
