What do you think about Rome?
23 Jan 07
The words "civilisation, greatness,empire,science,Latin,enemies" popped into my head . Although I have been to Rome (roma , the city) the name always reminds me of that great empire of Julius Caesars times . I also remember my father because he had a PHD in "the history of the eastern roman empire (byzantium)"

I also think about "stazione termini" and how I almost got lost there and the great park in the middle of Rome (can't remember it's name) where I proudly stood in front of the statues of Avicenna (moslem scholar) and Averroes (arab philosopher)

Yes ,I think that's the name , maybe I couldn't remember it because it starts with "villa" (villa usually means a type of house to me, although I know it originally meant town or village ) I will look up "villa borghese" on wikipedia .thank you for reminding me of the name .

I think about gladiators fighting with lions. Wait, that was in Rome wasn't it? I also think about Julia Cezar (sp?) even though Im only about 80% sure that he was from Rome. I guess just a great empire that has fallen but left a big mark on history.
