Came back from my little trip away, as one does, and also it seems these days as one does I signed into my Facebook account when I got home and replied to the messages and comments that I needed to. Off in the right hand top corner I noticed that in the “trending” column (relates to what is ‘tredning’ on Twitter) and I saw the word Colosseum.
Clicked on the link and I was horrified to discover that two tourists decided to engrave their initials on this ancient monument!

Being a lover of ancient times and stories, I was completely horrified (as thankfully, a lot of others seem to be as well). When did this start happening? Whose to blame? I was reminded recently of a group of young models that travelled overseas recently and a couple of these young ladies showing their ankles in a mosque!
I think it’s time we brought into school a type of “cultural” class or cultural workshops. That’s just my opinion, but it couldn’t harm to have one now could it?
