Roaming in Rome (and Brussels)

Dude and I went to Rome where we saw some really old buildings and other interesting things.

The Palatine Hills:

The Roman Forum (and the Colosseum nearby):

Interesting poster at the Piazza del Campidoglio:
Here's another view:

Gardens at Villa Borghese:

Locks of love near the Trevi Fountain:

The famous Bernini sculpture - the ecstasy of St. Therese:

After three days in Rome we wandered over to Brussels, where we sampled Belgian beers, Belgian chocolates, Belgian waffles and French fries (which the Belgians claim are actually Belgian). We also found the energy to waddle down to the Grand Place ( it was a rainy day, and so we understandably spent most of our time indoors):
