This is such a choice photo. Its the Pyramid of Cestius in Rome (built around 15BCE), pretty sure you can't drive around it like this now.
Seriously. This is one of the slides that I have to learn for classics. When the hell are they going to update this course!!
(But secretly I'm glad because then I get to look at funny old images like this)

wow that is amazing, you can drive past it but not completely around from my poor memory and it's all blacky! Such a choice photo.

Hallo, thanks for your lovely comment. I bought the pattern as a pdf file from a shop on etsy and so I shall forward you to the store as otherwise I'd feel I was stealing someone's business! I hope that's ok with you :) You can find it here and it only cost me £3 so is a total bargain! http://www.etsy.com/shop/Mrsdepew?ref=pr_shop
