Via Appia Antica

Posted: 2009-01-02 03:17 PM   
I used to know where all these Roman roads went as I studied Roman and Greek History at school to A level of GCE but I'm afraid that what was once a good memory is getting a bit rusty.

In 1976 my son now aged 40 sat on a bus to the catacombs playing aat driving a chariot - I'm not sure but it may have been the Appian Way he was driving!

On another board I have often felt discouraged by nil responses, only to have people saying long (sometimes years) later how interested they were - so please don't be too discouraged by getting few comments.

I think it is part of what some members have described (rightly I think) as a good problem for Globo if there are too many photos, reports, etc coming in for people to be able to spare time rating and commenting.

Via Flaminia

I am afraid I missed many of your reports whist I was engrossed in family history.

I think the idea of a linked series like this is great and I shall be catching up over the next couple of days - I don't want to read them all at once; that's never th best way to appreciate anything.

Keep up the good work.
Happy New Year

The Hanseatic League

Posted: 2008-12-18 11:04 AM   

The dates in my report are correct. The League enjoyed a monopoly on trade only until the 16th century only. Many Hanseatic cities put self interest first, above the one of the League's. This started to happen when Poland won wars with the Teutonic Knights (1410, 1466), who partially controled some of the key cities and therefore trade on the southern Baltic. The rise of Russia in the east with their won battle in Novgorod in 1478 and the rapid mega-rise of the Swedish Empire, which took control effectively over the entire Baltic, ended the monopoly. The League effectively imploaded by the end of the 16th century, while the kontors in Antwerp (1593) and London (1598) closed down.

The League functioned a little longer into the 17th century, but had no monopoly on trade or trade routes.

I hope this helps. :)

Kindest regards

The issue of Tibet transpired in one of the Groups discussions and you might have left a few comments in the guestbook postings of a few members, I cannot remember exactly, it might have been Petra and/or Isabelle. Please browse through there.

Regarding your personnal perspective... I think I know what it is, you provided a few hints in the previous discussions. I would welcome a more elaborate point of view, but I do not think we should do that on GLOBO, as this is a non-political website. I will send you my email address in a private message.

However, I was interested in clarifying the case of the invasion of Tibet in a more factually accurate manner. I would like to know the real reasons rather than a personal perspective on the issue. I think this could be benefitial for the GLOBO members, who were interested in the issue over Tibet. This is what I meant for you to try to do in 1,000 characters.

Kind regards

Yellowknife report (second part)

Posted: 2008-12-18 07:49 AM   
Second part:

I also know that the Tibetans live now much better under Chinese rule than when the Theocracy of the Dalai Lama’s governed Tibet and seized all their richness (I was robed by the “pacific” Tibetans in the Kingdom of Mustang). Other Buddhist sects, such as the Kagyupa, for instance, among the rest of the Tibetan Buddhist sects, do not like the ambition of power and involvement of politics by the Gelugpa sect (although I admire the kindness and wisdom of the present Dalai Lama), and they declare that the Gelugpa’s should care about the souls of the Tibetan people and not about their material life.

Please, read my Kashi report (China) to learn about my feelings about China.
