Its my first time experiencing fall after being in a tropical climate all my life. Its already quite interesting just walking outside of the house looking at the trees changing their colours from greens to goldens, reds, yellows and browns.
Cart thought that it would be a good idea to spend some time to admire the colours, and thus, a couple of weeks ago, we headed off to Bomarzo.
Bomarzo is a town out of Rome and it takes about an hour to reach there from our place. In Bomarzo, there is an attraction called the Bosco dei Mostri (Monster’s Grove) on account of the amount of large sculptures here.
Some of them interesting :
Like this mausoleum-like build which was constructed in the 16th century. I’m not certain if there are any bodies being cremated here though.
This statue was huge! The mouth was as tall as I am. Unfortunately the statue was fenced in so we could not get enter without climbing in.
Its much more evocative in real life to see the stone pegasus and the giant turtle in the background. All those moss makes it so much more charming. Like a real life Tomb Raider set. My pictures doesn’t do it justice unfortunately.
This is like the mouth of truth only much much much bigger.
Regardless, my favourite scene would have to be this one :
It’s a leaning house which you could enter. But once you are inside, your mind starts giving you this vertigo feeling.
Because inside the house, its hard to gauge which is a flat plane or not. After a while in the house, its easy to feel a little dizzy.
And then suddenly, Bomarzo reminded me of Haw Par Villa, a park of dioramas in Singapore. It might not be exactly the same, but it had the same nice magical feeling to roam around in.
