Before even getting there we took a group jet charter to Italy. Now if you have never taken a trip via a private jet charter, you have no idea what you are missing. It’s even better than flying first class. First of all you don’t go to the regular terminal at a commercial airport with all the crowds and long lines. You don’t have to go through the security check points. You go to a fixed-base operator (FBO) location. A FBO is a commercial business granted the right by an airport to operate within the airpot grounds. FBO’s provide aeronautical services such as fueling, tie-down and parking, hangers, a pilots’ lounge, conference rooms (sometimes), and aircraft maintenance to private jets. They are also the place from which private jet charter flight passengers board their plane. Very cool. A group jet charter jet such as they one we flew in might not have been as fancy as some executive jet planes, but it was roomier and had better amenities, such as great food, that you would ever get on a commercial airline. Also, it was just us, no one else on the flight. I am spoiled! Flying into Rome on our group jet charter was great. The view was gorgeous.
Once on the ground we got to work looking for the cams. The first and most amazing cam is located on the roof of the Hotel Forum, overlooking the Colosseum. And the amazing thing about the Colosseum is that this monument which is almost 2000 years old, is still standing in a very good shape, right in the middle of Rome. It is a giant oval stadium that was capable of holding over 50,000 spectators. It was inaugurated in 80 AD by Titus, with a series of games that lasted 100 days and nights. Although the cam’s main view was of the Colosseum, you could also see some of the buildings where people lived that surrounded the historical site.
As a novice decorator, I noticed in the cam view that the large apartment building opposite the cam had what looked like uniform silk designer drapes in all windows. Funny how you can spot silk fabric from even far away. I spoke with one of the residents who told me that the condo supplied these gorgeous curtains to provide a consistent high end image. Definitely works! Would love to have our landlord outfit our apartment with drapes like this – would make such a huge difference for not only the residents, but for anyone looking to rent/purchase. The fact that I could make this out on a cam is pretty impressive as well!
