On a decide de jouer a cleydael. Arrive la, on a fait du practicesur un driving range absolument minable. Interdit d employer de bois ou de driver. Pour se reposer il y avait deux bancs plein de fiente d oiseaux. On a paye notre green fee tre cher au secretariat ou il y avait in personel apathique. Une porte de prison aplus de charisme. Partout des poubelles qui debordent de tousles cotes. On a commence a jouer. On a mis 5heures a nous deux. Partout il fallait attendre. Le terain etait archi plein.aucun bunker n etait ratisse alors que le "marshall " etait assis ecoutant son I pod au lieu de faire avancer les flights qui ralentissaient tout. Les greens avaient la grandeur de mouchoirs de poche et etaient couvert de moissure.apres on a quitte le terrain. Les pistolets de haute pression pour nettoyer les chaussures ne marchaient pas. On a pris une douche, pas de savon. Les douches ressemlaient a ceux que j avais chez les scouts! Pas de savon. Les toilettes puaient horriblement. Apres aon a mange dans le resto ou les serveurs etaient incompetents. Paye tres che. Mal mange. La vue sur le chateau est magnifique, mais ce nest pas pour ca qu on va jouer au golf. Puis on est rentre a bruxelles. Un bel exemple de terrain de golf avec mauvais management. Plus jamais

Cleydael Golfcourse is een zeer mooie baan met een goed restaurant men kan er dus een mooie dag van maken. De greens spijtig genoeg zijn echte maanlandschappen waardoor ik pars en bogeys miste, niet aanvaarbaar. Maar toch hadden we een mooie dag

Arch of Constantine

The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the largest Roman triumphal arch. The arch spans the Via triumphalis, the way taken by the emperors when they entered the city in triumph.

Though dedicated to Constantine, much of the decorative material incorporated earlier work from the time of the emperors Trajan (98-117), Hadrian (117-138) and Marcus Aurelius (161-180), and is thus a collage. The last of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, it is also the only one to make extensive use of spolia, reusing several major reliefs from 2nd century imperial monuments, which give a striking and famous stylistic contrast to the sculpture newly created for the arch.

The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. Above the archways is placed the attic, composed of brickwork reveted (faced) with marble. A staircase within the arch is entered from a door at some height from the ground, on the west side, facing the Palatine Hill. The general design with a main part structured by detached columns and an attic with the main inscription above is modelled after the example of the Arch of Septimius Severus on the Roman Forum.
