|Egyptian Obelisk at the Piazza del Popolo, Rome|
The Via Del Corso is a straight shot from Piazza del Popolo to Piazza Venezia. I walked that distance and even further to the Baths of Caracalla (it was madness walking that distance; the immensity of those baths, an altogether different kind of madness). Along the way: ancient ruins, abandoned antiquities naked to the elements, the restored villa of Augustus, the remains of a weather worn column or a temple.

All the ruins strewn among the modernity, Rome better than any place on earth can tell you permanence has a price, but better that than gone forever.
Either way, I still think I dreamed it.
