Eyes Wide Open is a memorial exhibition sponsored by the American Friends Service Committee. The boots symbolize the Americans who have died in Iraq.

The US casualty increases as the exhibition travels around US.

There were 1,372 pairs of boots in the memorial during its stay in Greensboro, N.C., January 23-25, 2005 where Tom Lassiter made the panorama.

Today Wednesday 26, 37 more US soldiers were killed which makes it the deadliest day for the American forces since the start of the war in Iraq.

The organisation behind Eyes Wide Open, the American Friends Service Committee, is not just a new peace organisation because of the War in Iraq. It was founded in 1917.

From their website:

For almost 90 years of work in war zones on four continents, we have gained an intimate knowledge of the costs and horrors of war.

When this exhibit was unveiled by our Chicago office in January 2004, there were 504 pairs of boots symbolizing the lost lives of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. With each passing week, each stop in a new city, more pairs of boots are added to represent the newly fallen.

The Spanish steps - Scalla di Spagna (or Scalinata della Trinita' dei Monti) is one of the favorite meeting places in Rome both for Tourists and the citizens of Rome.

The steps were built as a proposal from Cardinal Mazarin, an advisor to Louis XIV of France, but it took a hundred years of controversy with the pope until it was finally built in 1725.

The steps leeds to the French church Trinita dei Monti at the top.

The fountain on the Plaza is called Fontana della Barcaccia. It is from 1588 and was constructed by Pietro Bernini, and his more famous son Gian Lorenzo.

When you look to the right of the steps you can see the house where John Keats died in 1821,

The panorama from the Spanish steps is just one of many from the last Arounder produced by VRWay.

From you can now visit Milano - Lugano - Monte Carlo - Barcelona and Rome
