Japan and Italy!

I’m keeping this short today–my two dream trips (if ever I can afford enough leisure) are to Japan and Italy.  I studied Japanese in high school, and as a Great Books scholar Rome is the most fascinating place in all of history (and it’s not particularly close).  So what a perfect weekend!  I am reading You Gotta Have Wa–about the cultural challenges facing Americans playing baseball in Japan–and also The Marble Faun–Hawthorne’s novel set in Rome.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend as much as I do!  Look for the American history volumes of Essays on the Classics! when you seek stimulation 😉
