“Rome is the center of the world” were some of the first words Prof. Judy told our group. The city is a beautiful blend of the ancient and modern worlds. Every inch of that city has a beautiful history from the buildings to the people. Every block of Rome took my breath away. The ruins that scattered the city were astonishing and to think that they have lasted for centuries awed me. I felt so connected to the people before me. I was where the western world began, where modern societies model themselves, I was in the center of the world.
