City in Pink........Verona!

The sidewalks and many of the buildings are made of pink marble. Still they shine pink lights on their Roman forum, third biggest in Europe, built around 100 AD. Lots of Roman ruins everywhere including the stone bridge.  Our restaurant served several horse eat dishes along with donkey. Earlier in the day, we found a butcher shop featuring horse meat. so below,wifi permitting, is a mix of Verona and Venice. Captions to be added later.

How very beautiful. I have been largely absent from the blogosphere and can see I am going to have to trawl through your (and other people's) back posts.
I hope you are having a wonderful, wonderful time.
