Tourists damage the Colosseum - level 1
Two American girls are in Rome. They are 21 and 25. They visit the Colosseum. They damage it. They write their initials on a wall. Then they take a selfie. Police officers see the girls. They stop them.
The Colosseum is 2,000 years old. It is very popular. Millions of people visit it every year. Sadly, some tourists damage it. A Russian man put an initial on a wall last year. Police caught him. He paid 20,000 euros.
Difficult words: damage (to do something bad to something), initial (the first letter of a name), selfie (a picture of yourself, taken by yourself; this picture is often put on the Internet).
