Rome wasn't built in a day...

... so a blogpost on Rome also cannot be done in a day wtf.

Thus this post with some random photos of our first day first few hours in Rome! Out of all the places that we visited in Europe, it is my second favorite city (after Paris).

We were taken on a walking tour in the heart of Rome, and one of the first places we went to was Piazza del Campidoglio. One thing to note, Rome is absolutely sprawling with piazzas and squares!

At the Pantheon, where I was completely astounded by its architecture and structure.

For example, light (from the dome's opening) moves around the space in a sundial effect. And due to the opening in the dome, there is also drainage system below the floor that handles the rain that falls through. The building is also a unique structure of a dome within a cube. The Pantheon was built thousands of years ago, so it's amazing how brilliant the Romans are!!

Happy chirpy: Actually I don't think I have done a proper shopping post for Korea! :/ But my fave places to go to are Myeongdong, Garosugil and Dongdaemun. :) The searchbox is a good idea! Let me figure out how first, haha.
