In awe of the French
Anytime I take a trip in France and walk among ancient Roman ruins, I am thankful to the French.
In French towns and villages where the Romans used to roam, you can actually see, feel, touch and experience the places of the past. There are arenas, forums and amphitheaters in the center of towns that are as active today as they were 2000 years ago.
You can climb on and over the walls, paths and steps where Caesar’s men walked.
You can tread the same routes where early villagers pushed their carts and lead their horses.
Thank you, France, for preserving these sites; for leaving these places open and
available to the public.
Thank you for enabling us to re-live, revere and learn from those before us.
Thanks to Pete Bine for contributing photos for this post!
