    So, is that it? Are your studies in Rome finished? You have done an unbelievable amount of work in this space, it’s pretty wild. So, the bigger question is, was that someone who recommended this to you right?

    Yes, my studies in Rome are over. Well, for now they are – there’s always the American Academy in Rome for graduate-level studies in Classics. As for this blog, I still haven’t decided whether I have a use for it in the near future.
    The person who suggested that I keep a blog was definitely right; it was totally worthwhile. It is really interesting to look back on the experience through what I wrote about it at the time when it was my life. In addition, I kept a written journal during the trips when I did not have internet access, so there’s the potential for some pretty fascinating comparisons. One blogs with the expectation that anyone in the world potentially could read what she has written, but one writes a journal with only a vague sense of the possibility that someone else may read it. The effect of having an audience accounts for many of the differences – in style, tone, particulars, etc. – between a blog and a written journal. I’ve learned a lot both about myself and about human interaction in general from using both media.
