Amphitheatre. I always feel sad when see a place like this where gladiators
Actually, Trier was not my first tourism visit in Germany. On the day I arrived in Saarbruecken, September 12, 2002, there was a scheduled trip to "Zweckband Historisches Museum Saar"(www.historisches-museum.org) at 02.00 pm and I did go there! My flight landed at around 6.00 am at Frankfurt am Mainz. Then, I was picked-up at 10.00 am and 2 hours transferred by car to Saarbruecken. I reached Saarbruecken at 12.00, put the luggages in my room, had a lunch and at 2.00 pm, I went to the museum with the group!

It was pretty strange, after a long flight I did not feel tired at all. Maybe because I feel very excited with everything. The reality that I will live for one year in Germany made me high and it erased all my sense of being tired.

Unfortunately, since at that time the use of digital camera was not that popular like nowadays and I did not bring my handy video camera, I could not capture my visit to the museum. On the other hand, when I went to Trier, some of my fellows already bought digital cameras and I asked them to take some pictures for me.

So, these pictures were taken by different cameras, depending of which friends that was standing near me. At that time, I haven't had the chance to introduce myself to all fellows which were going together with me. There are some friends come from Jordan, Lebanon, The Philippines, Tanzania, and many other countries. We were kinda representatives from all over the place on this earth. For the first time, I got to know many people from many different countries, many races, many languages. It was pretty strange but surely a valuable experience.

Later on, we were already blended together. It seemed that people wherever they came from, they were basically the same. Some were funny, nice, some were quiet, some were just ignore you. The same. The time went on and soon I get used to it.

Ok. About Trier, it was a beautiful city. We walked to see many things in a very close distance. There were Roman baths, an ampiteathre, a church, a palace, and a gate called Porta Nigra or in English means Black Gate.
