Day 7 : Rome Italy (20 June 2008) Cont
After our tour of the Roman Forum we followed the guide to the Collosseum and went inside. It took 8 years to built the colloseum and it was celebrated with 100 days of games. It was used for different games like a man with spear against an animal or 20 prisoners without weapons against animals. They would even gather water inside and would then have naval battles inside. The colloseum is huge and it is difficult to think it was built so long ago.

We also went looking for a place to buy memory cards for our cameras because we were taking a lot of photos and was running out of space. At the first shop we tried the power was out and at the second the lady could not speak English. We walked around some more and finally found memory cards at a shop near Piazza Navona.
We then visited 2 small churches named Chiesa di Santa Maria Maddelena and Santa Maria in Aquiro. These churches were amazing inside. It was very quiet inside and felt holy. We did not take any pictures inside.
