Monks (?) taking a break amongst the ruins

guys in white (monks?) stand lazily in a group, looking out over the Roman Coliseum(Click photo to see larger version)

I took this photo while on a weekend vacation in Rome, during the summer of my internship in Germany in 1997.

It actually took me forever to find the Coliseum, or any exciting Roman tourist stuff in general, since stubborn/stupid me depended on a free and lousy McDonald’s Map (no joke!) from the tourist office which somehow had me walking for 5 hours in the sleepy suburbs of Rome where no one spoke English… in the OPPOSITE direction of where I was trying to get to. I suppose it beat being fed to the lions, though!
