The trains don’t stop at night, but they are helpful during the day. Today was really awesome, as we spent the majority of the day surrounded by Roman ruins. We took a train to Porta Nigra, part of an old wall that surrounded Trier. This gate was preserved, because it was converted into a church. Next, we visited the Imperial Baths, which were my favorite part. The baths themselves were grassy squares, but underneath was a maze of tunnels and pipes, which looked like a scene from Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider. As the day was very hot, exploring thee damp dark tunnels was even more appealing. The final ruins we stopped at were the amphitheater. Because the museum was on the way and air-conditioned we looked at the exhibits. The majority seemed to be Roman. The theater wasn’t as cool as the Imperial Baths, because the seating was all gone. Again the best part was underground. Underneath the theater was below the water table, so we had to walk on bridges over deep pools, where a mechanical platform used to raise and lower people to the arena.
