Nimes

We are spending two days in Nines, a city that was founded around year number -50 but got its extension through Roman finances around year +70-80 (I don’t remember, sorry!). They have water from the country side traveling with the help of a giant aqueduct (Pont du Gard) and a giant amphitheater that we visited this morning. The town is not big but charming and we got lucky to escape rain and very hot weather.

This is fascinating to think that most of the old buildings here were built when other countries did not even have a name whatsoever. Almost 2000 years ago, the engineers rulled.
