Welcome to Photo Friday. This week we have a shot I took on the outskirts of Mérida, in Spain's autonomous community of Extremadura. It's a Roman aqueduct on the edge of town, not far from the ancient hippodrome. I like the contrast between ancient and modern here, with the car whizzing by on the highway and a modern house right next door.
I just wrapped up a travel series for Gadling about this region, titled Exploring Extremadura: Spain's historic southwest. Hop on over to see more pictures!
