roman walk

I visited several sites. I like roman architecture especially and stepped in to Mercati di Traiano. It was like a modern shopping complex built on a slope. The corridor was designed to let the sun shine in from the ceiling. Amazingly the excavation work was applied to it recently and they found a sophisticated drain system. A microscope developed by Olympus was employed to study very narrow pipes.

I found artichokes tasteful. I could not resist to its temptation. Fried one was particularly nice.
