I just watched Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris (I think it was).

He went to the era of The Charmed Circle (a title of one book of mine) which I would surely enjoy but I think you can still experience that here and now, if you want.

I would like to travel to the era of about 600 BCE in SE Asia as the red-heads and Ainu started having to leave their homeland, and went to places like Barabudur. I hope I can capture some of this when I move to Angkor Watt and check out a new archaeological dig - addressing Lingam and Yoni sexual deities.

I would like to go back to the year 1500 AD I think. What with da Vinci and all that jazz.

I know you're coming in the night like a thief, but I've had some time alone, to hone my lying technique. I know you think that I'm someone you can trust, but I'm scared I'll get scared, and I swear I'll try to nail you back up. So do you think that we could work out a sign, so I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try? I know you're coming for the people like me. We've all got wood and nails, turned out in a hate factory.

You certainly would get an education in those eras - just be careful of the Inquisitions and all that "jazz".

Absolutely...Though I was referring to the art and culture of that time. The Inquisition was most certainly not of God. I'd definitely steer clear of the Medici...hahaha.

You can see and get to know all that was good about the Renaissance without going to all the trouble - the Medicis were not so bad - the Borgia who married in to them - were truly bad as the recent mini-series showed.

The Louvre is one place you would probably love to spend a week. I only spent a day but it had a lasting effect on me.

There are lesser and good museums elsewhere but I do hope you get to the Louvre.

BTW - I should not have branded all Borgias as bad. They are one family I have little to go on but suspicions as to who they were in the centuries before Rodrigo and Lucretia. They might have had some good reasons for getting back at society like the Chinese do today.

So many places where I would like to go. One of my top eras would be when Jesus Christ was preaching the word and the apostles preaching the good news, the Gospel. Another time I would like to be in, would be after the war for Independence, America's Independence. And finally, the 1950's, 60's and 70's. When gas was about 5 cents to 25 cents a gallon. I'll be tapping my feet pumping my gas while listening to some Frank Sinatra. lol

Late Roman republic so I could see the architecture, gardens, colluseum, temples, roads, and plumbing. 
Then I would like to meet either Julius Caesar or Lucius Cornelius Sulla.
But, I wouldn't really wanna be a Proletariat xD
