Le Pont du Gard

The Pont du Gard is an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge. It stands 160 ft high, and was a part of a 31 mile long aqueduct which formerly carried an estimated 44 million gallons of water a day to the fountains, baths and homes of the citizens of Nîmes (see previous entries). It is BEAUTIFUL.

 Me and Ryan were a couple of rebels and sat on the edge. (That red thing below is a person picnicking.) 

Just some 1774 graffiti

my tourist photo.

the ride back was beautiful.
