History Lesson

This morning my boss took me outside and showed me where the great hiking trails are here at Capri. He pointed out a couple of old buildings and said that Nero moved his headquarters to Capri because it was so beautiful (the same Nero that burned the city if Rome however AD ago). He told me that on the other side of the island there are a bunch of rocks and that those rocks are where Homer said that the screaming syrens are supposed to be living from The Odyssey. I'm in shock that I am here seeing things that I have learned about in history, what a great opportunity.
