    1. Good to see you Glenn! I feel that way a lot of the time when I'm excavating - asking myself; who lived here? What did they eat, think, feel?

  3. I adore sitting in old Roman amphitheatres whenever I am lucky enough to come across one.

  5. We were almost in the same neighborhood: I just returned from a week on Corfu. Visited the remains of the Temple of Hera, among other marvels. Hope you are enjoying your travels.
