Now that the kids are riding the bus to school, we have a short 3 minute walk to the pick up area near our house. And as this is Rome, on that quick walk we happen to walk by some ruins. Only these aren’t just any ruins: they are among the oldest temples discovered in Rome, dating back to the Republican era. The oldest of the four temples dates to early 3rd century BC. These columns have become part of the scenery, and then the kids hop on this funny white bus with a driver and a bus attendant. To hear them tell it, it’s a boisterous comedy between these two all the way to school.
