You can’t go to ruins in America, mostly due to the fact that the country is only 200 years old (but also because we’re a super destructive society). I’ve always wanted to see Greek ruins, and somehow, the fact that we’re going to was completely off my radar. So of course, I researched it, using actual books. I feel like I should get some brownie points.
Let me tell you a lil summin’ bout myself. My love of history runs almost as deep as my love of garlic bread. So, as the massive nerd I am, I wrote a history paper about Istanbul (just because I can) and I’ve decided to share it with you all, so you might understand the world just a fraction better.
In true Lily style, it’s stuffed with bad jokes and music puns. You’re welcome.
