ODE TO ROME -travel episode 2


Why Rome? Why Rome? Well, I mean, it’s a place that I studied really intensely for, like, two years of my life. But why did you study it over others? That’s my question. Oh! I really like the transition or the supposed transition that you’re meant to see between, antiquity and the Classical World and the Medieval Word. Because people, you tend to assume that, you know, there was the Fall of Rome so everything must have been massively different. But then, actually studying it, I actually found a lot of continuity in the way the world worked. Even if the population had diminished significantly it’s still like amazing to see how much of that [Roman] culture survived. So I guess, I guess, that’s why. That’s a really good answer, you already sound like you’ve got a PHD. Thank you! Umm…
I would live, I think, in the same place that we stayed, like, not that specific building but I would want to live near the, near the Lateran Because I really like- -Near the what? It’s like the.. Near the Lateran? the big church close to our hostel? Oh yeah. Umm, also it’s like the famous, well not famous, but that’s like the gay bit of Rome. So… Hmm, I didn’t know that. I’d probably want to stay close to that. I think l, I think I maybe don’t really appreciate or take as much advantage of as I could of where I am. I don’t really. I don’t know, it doesn’t, it doesn’t really strike me as something that makes me want to go places. Like, I don’t wake up in the morning thinking, “Oh, you know what? I studied this thing about Germany. I could just get on a flight this weekend and go.” I get what you mean.It’s like you, you do tend to lose like the magic and the whole, like, I don’t know, the feeling of enchantment with a place. Once you’ve been somewhere for so long you don’t notice it as much. Hey everybody! Thanks so much for watching that. I hope you appreciated the work and effort that went into that. Thanks again to Ash my freind from Poland and the UK for her help and if you have any questions leave them below. And I hope you enjoy the place where you’re living because I’m sure there’s history that’s fascinating or sad, or amazing. Thanks so much for watching and I’ll see you as soon as I can put together another video. Thank you.
