Another Classic

Now that I have finished the Thelonious Monk biography ,I am returning to my Classics theme. I got on this kick years ago after seeing Michael Wood's" In search of the Trojan War" Television series on PBS . That series not only got me interested in this whole History thing but also in classic books. In High School I could not be bothered with any of it because I was too busy listening to Count Basie. Now ,I find them really rewarding. This book is a descriptive guide to Central Greece written in the 2nd century. I guess you could say Pausanias is the Rick Steves of his time!
