While exploring Rome some months ago I stumbled upon an odd place situated in the park overlooking Piazza del Popolo. It was a sort of a tented restaurant with quaint charm to it, decorated with many not related artifacts and other decorative objects. There it was hanging against a window, an original Led Zeppelin guitar signed by the band members.
Please find attached their best known hit, and one of my favourite songs ever….

For this week’s Word a Week Photo Challenge – Round I’ve decided to post a photo of the most famous amphitheatre in the Roman world Colosseum, which though not round, but oval in shape, is the best known example of Roman architecture. The word amphitheatre is derived from Latin amphitheatrum, i.e. Gk. amphitheatron, neut. of amphitheatros “with spectators all around,” from amphi– “on both sides” + theatron “theater,” from theasthai “watch, look at.” (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=amphitheater)
The word round thus made me think of another word – amphitheatre. I hope you’ll find this etymology interesting.
