After exploring the Coliseum, we went over to the ruins (Roman Forum, Palatino). Up in the Palatino there is a great view of ancient Rome:
We were sitting on a bench resting our feet and I was completely ignoring this couple off to our left. Then the guy turns to us and asks my friend to please take a picture. His girlfriend (now fiancee?) is teary eyed and was trying to compose herself for the picture, saying that she is ‘so emotional right now’ but she was smiling.
After we left, my friend told me that she smelled a marriage proposal. So freakin cute.
