Embracing the Old and the New
Rome is truly an "Eternal City". The people seem to embrace both the ancient and the new and the two just blend together at times. Dressing as a Centurion (admittedly for the tourists) whilst talking on your cell phone. Listening to your favorite tunes on your ipod as you go jogging around the Circus Maximus. Darting around cars/corners on your motor scooters on ancient cobblestone streets. Even St Peter's square has been updated with giant screens standing in front of the old columgs.
