Are we gonna drink a coffee here, next to the Colosseum? We will, but after we visit the monument Look how beautiful this is! How is it called? Bougainvillea (paper flower) It looks very nice this coffee shop Look up there, our flag is there as well Look, Romania .. right here In the left side it's the El Djem Colosseum We will take some photos soon We gonna feel the highest temperature ever Too hot already It's a little bit cooler in here What did you understand in the end about this location? Talk louder ..it's only 2 of us now. Until now we had to speak with a lower tone voice because we were in a group The guide was talking to us as well... So tell me...
So, this Colosseum was built by the local people And the Emperor from that time, Gordian, destroyed a part of it because... The Colosseum was closed, as a circle, now is a part missing exactly in front I don't know if it is visible from here There, where is that part missing and the sky is visible ..there a part is missing because the Tunisian Emperor from those times ... decided to demolish it because the people refused to pay taxes And then, he took them the "toy", the fun They used to organise all kind of contests: with animals, with gladiators Exactly.... all kind of "powers" (let's call them like this) were fighting here and no one was paying taxes, nothing at that point, the Emperor decided to demolish a part of the "toy" as a revenge As a mention, here it were filmed couple of scenes of the Gladiator movie If you watched it ... I did ...if you did you should be able to remember this. It really nice here, it's cooler then the outside Let's go on the right side You can see the city from here This city has around 35,000 habitants The monument looks pretty height from here We gone up another 2 floors.. You can see we are much higher now
This is the entrance There is a camel as well, Tunisian "taxi" We can see the spire of the mosque a bit better now The whole city is much more visible from here No way...come on, let's carry on. Let's go much higher Really nice. Look at the sun how is rising after that wall. Yes, nice..really nice, but we didn't eat anything from last night, so let's go to look for some food Listen, do you trust to eat from here? From these gladiators? If I trust to eat from the hotel where are we staying... 0:05:08.016,1193:02:47.295 On those stairs, you go underground where the gladiators were getting ready for fight
.... and these stairs I don't know where they go...under the ground , somewhere Under the ground is a tunnel where the gladiators were getting ready and than they were going up again from that pit in the middle of the arena Exactly as in the film. The price per person is about 3 dinars, which means 3 Did I say 3 dinars? No, is 12 dinars, 3 English pounds, 3 Euros, 3.5 Dollars. It's not too expensive (as a mention, we had the price included in the trip's price) Done, you made friends here as well. She's pregnant. Her belly is huge She will "explode" soon...
We are in a craft shop, but Andreea is making friends from the animal's world, as always. Magnets and a lot of home decorations. This is the city vibe: a lot of scooters people are sitting at coffee shops, bars. They don't drink alcohol, but they having a coffee, tea, glass of water Coffee shops everywhere Let's see what we gonna have as a drink, because I'm very thirsty.
Everything what you like as drink and food. They also have toilette here if you need it. What did you buy? I bought pastries. Kind of roll with cinnamon on top. 1 dinar (0.31 USD/EUR; 0.27 GBP) From a brasseries really nice and clean. There are also nice things in here, if they want, they can. All beers are alcohol free.
