Romeo and Juliet??

Obviously, everyone knows of the famous love story of Romeo and Juliet.
But how many of you actually knew that it was a true story? Immortalised by Shakespeare?
For as long as I live, I have always wanted to read up this story in the original version. My mum has the book. However, I really can never comprehend it. Looks like some drama script instead of an actual narrative story book.
Well, the amazing part is, my mum has read most of Shakespeare's masterpiece. And everyone of them, written in the original manner. Big Big salute to my mum!! Either that, or I'm just too stupid.

Now, as I visited Verona, the place where the actual Romeo and Juliet incident took place, I learned of the very appaling truth about this love story.
As insane as it may sound, but Juliet was only 13 years old at that time. *wtf???!*
I can't help it but to wonder, at 13, and she could make up her mind that it was worth dying for a MAN ??
No, how can I refer to Romeo as a man? Guess his age?

He was 16 at that time. Gosh! A BOY maybe.

Now...let the pictures speak it all.

Pic 1. Juliet's house. That was the balcony that Juliet normally stood, and where Romeo came to talk to her, confess to her, and climb into her room.
I couldn't help it but to wonder, were there times, when he actually fell off trying to climb into the balcony?

The very sexy Juliet. At 13, no wonder my tourist guide said, she blossomed too early.
Her boobs are obviously bigger than mine.
Oh, people believe that touching her right boobs, and your love life will be blessed?
Look at how shining it is in comparison to her other parts, cause too many people touch dy.

Shakespeare. He wasn't from Verona. But they made this to remember his great masterpiece.

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,....

Nice pics Erny. I have always loved the story.
You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart, Lee.
