Wonder how many people walked that road since 28AD?

Roman ways pervade all Western thought and behavior, which is in total opposition to the mystical and vegetarian, peaceful, meditating ways of the man they claim to represent at the Vatican. Lands are taken over, indigenous murdered...and yet, people follow these Roman's words to this very day????

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Giana because you have done so within the last day.

Thanks for sharing this Giana. :)

Amazing story! When I was in southern France in 1978, I visited the town of Vaison La Romaine. The Roman ruins and the modern town are in the valley on the banks of the river Ouvèze which is crossed by an ancient bridge from the 1st century AD. I sat on the edge of that bridge and swear I could hear ox carts, marching feet, children running and laughing, tank treads --- a parade of historical sounds. Quite amazing actually. In the lower town there were Roman gardens unearthed along with great mosaic floors from the bath house, and an amplitheatre. In another area, near Orange, we came across a Roman water viaduct that was still being used to bring water down from the hills. The Romans used their engineering skills to build durable things to help people. The biggest problem was that they used slave labour too often to do it. I won't get into the Roman Catholic Church history that stems from this period forward, but needless to say, it is less than pleasant.

I am fascinated by anthing dealing with ancient civilizations and countries. Funny how the Romans had roads that last longer than the ones in my city!
