  1. Awesome monmuments to Roman engineering! Paul must be in 7th heaven!

    Thanks for the update - can't wait to hear more!

  2. Can it still carry water? I love the argument with my british friends where they say we pay too much taxes. We have to repave the entire country every 4 years, them, they are driving on roads that the romans built, literally.
