At the Pont du Gard

Sunday we had a leisurely breakfast of eggs, fresh melon and, of course, bread, we headed to the Pont du Gard. (www.pontdugard.fr) I have always wanted to see this magnificient Roman monument – what a testament to the feat of engineers. I did notice that the French are being dragged into the 21st century and now have English posted alongside French in their newer museums. That is certainly not the case with most sites, although you can sometimes sometimes find brochures in other languages.

    Great picture. The heck with the feat of engineers, what a testament to the feet of the slaves used to power treadmill used to hoist those blocks? Did you get to go inside the aqueduct? Way cool.
