We were going to an ancient Roman theatre from 1st century CE after seeing the amphitheater of Merida. I thought the Roman theatre was actually quite similar to the theatres today.

We sat on the stairs,seeing what it might have looked like back then. My brothers and I went down to a big tunnel under all the stairs. I thought I was going to trip and fall because parts of the short tunnel were dark and we were running through it. We started spying on Janet and my Grandma, Bita.

We went up on the stairs where everybody sat to see performances, running through the tunnels which was probably my favorite part, and out the back. Jasper was running and a man said that you couldn’t run in the ruins though other kids were, so we stopped and rested in sun and then left the ruins.
