The Pantheon by Night


It's 9pm and I am on the steps of the Pantheon, erected in 125 AD. I saw it yesterday afternoon, but there's a surreal magic sitting here as its formidable presence glows in the dark of night. Across from where I sit looms an ancient obelisk, brought from the Egyptian Temple of Ra. The fountains at the bottom, are high enough to block my view of the McDonald's behind it, its running waters tranquilizing me, allowing me the pleasure of imagining this place as it was thousands of years ago.

You're thinking about the Parthenon, which is in Greece. Google "Pantheon" to learn more about it.
