Started reading Imperium today on the train- my God, it's a brilliant read. Cicero is serious love, people. I want this book to be made into a film with some brilliant British Shakesperean actor in the role of Cicero, for surely the voice is everything when it comes to Arpinum's favourite son.
Assisi was lovely, and I felt a great sense of the holiness of the place. All cobbled roads and little brick houses, and stunning views of the Perugian countryside. I will come back again definitely, particularly since it rained half the time we were there and I didn't get to San Damiano because of that.
Anyway, it nears dinner time here, and I must sign off. I've had some annoying mixup with the order for my academic dress (got no confirmation e-mail and it looks like the payment mightn't have gone through *grumble*), so you will all no doubt hear from me again.
Again, hope you're all well.
