Red Poppies: Wars Are Eternal
So I'm posting here a picture I took last summer in Portugal. The poppies were growing in a field near the old Roman town of Conímbriga which was abandoned to attackers about 300 AD.
Conímbriga's ruins are spectacular and definitely worth a detour. The fact that poppies grow in distrubed soil nearby just testifies to the way that wars go on and on.
