Photo Of The Day – Rome Panorama From Altare della Patria

Title: Rome Panorama From Altare della Patria

Location: Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II, Rome, Italy, Europe


Description: The view from the top of Altare della Patria (Alter of the Fatherland) in Rome is astounding. It was 7€ to get to the top and you only spend maybe 10-15 minutes there. It can be found at 41°53’40” N 12°28’59” E

You can see St. Peter’s Basilica on the left in the distance and the Forum is behind us, unfortunately. The whole complex, which houses a museum and Italy’s Tomb of the Unknown Solider, is free to wander and it is pretty impressive. More information can be found here.

For a while I am going to ask for your assistance in helping those in Nepal rebuild their lives. Average citizens don’t have insurance and I would not trust the inept and corrupt government to help where it is needed most.

I am going to focus on two non-profits I know have ties in the country (read: employees with families who understand where funds can help the most) for my pleas for assistance.

The first is Planeterra, a non-profit run by G Adventures. The second is the Paldorje Sherpa Foundation run by Sherpa Adventure Gear. Both of these charities are run by their parent company, who covers all their overhead so that 100% of donations go to those in need. Both of these companies do the right thing and care for the people of Nepal greatly. Both have funds set up specifically to help quake victims.

Please consider donating today.
