This is one of the smaller entrances/exits to/from the huge amphitheatre. The picture is taken from the inside. To the left and right in the foreground are the remains of the lower tiers of seats.
If you look really carefully you can see the thin red bricks lining the roof of the tunnel, which we presume were the source of inspiration for the architect who designed the National Museum of Roman Art.
More information about the museum if you follow the link, and more pictures of both artefacts held in the museum and some of the other World Heritage sites in Mérida if you look > here <.
We're back to having problems with internet access - the speed is varying from sluglike to almost zero, which means that websites fail to load.
It's almost as bad as it was earlier in the year, which ended up with me/us to dropping our online stuff because it was so incredibly frustrating and time-consuming to do the most basic of activities such as checking mail - which also seemed to vanish into a black hole in cyberspace if it wasn't read within so many hours of being sent.
We had thought 'they' had fixed things, because it had improved for a while and why I was able to return.
We're told there are no faults, so we think it's simply down to too many households trying to use the same bits of telephone wire - there is no cable where we live and no plans for it to be introduced to the area. There have, however, been a lot of new homes built.
I'm going to stick with it, but please bear with me because I may not be able to visit your site as regularly as I might wish.)
