I've been reading about the 1848 revolutions and trying to decide if I'm going to Siberia or not. I sat at the cafe at Monument and the barista told me there was no charge for the coffee, for no particular reason. So that was nice, and I wrote a thankyou note on the cardboard bit of the cup and left it on the counter when her back was turned. So I can't show you that, but I can show you notes about 1848 and Caracalla the evil emperor, from a talk I went to tonight.
And WILL I go to Siberia? On my own, I don't know, but if I could persuade some friends to be at stops along the way...
