I Should Have Looked for Some GLADiators...

When you come back from traveling there are always a few things you think of and say "I wish I'd done that." One of those things last time was having my picture made with the somewhat grumpy, overweight men around the Coliseum dressed as Roman Soldiers.

No. I don't know why.

Yes, it seems silly to me now too.

This time however when I saw them I took a couple of euros out of my pocket (the suitable amount for photo ops according to the guide books) and approached the most UN-intimidating actors.

They arranged themselves and the third guy snapped the pic with my camera. They weren't very friendly and I don't think it was because they were in character.

He then asked me for ten euros. TEN EUROS? For taking a picture of me with my own camera? I laughed and told him I had two euros, he looked disgusted and took it.

Oh my,  what a difference a couple of thousand years make!
