Saturday Photo: All Roads Lead to Rome

Back to working on the next non-fiction book, Road through Time.  One of the pleasures of our trip earlier this summer was a day in Conímbriga, a Roman town in central Portugal.

For a good three hundred years or more, it was a provincial center on the road between what is now Lisbon and Braga.  Excavated over several decades in the 20th century, it now has a grand sample of what Roman roads look like.

That is splendid. Of course I've seen a lot of them in Italy, as well as lots of aqueducts and Trajan's multilevel market, in Rome.

Brr, it is chilly today! I made tomato sauce yesterday, with the chilly rain.
