    ... we saw scholars studying different works, which was a pleasure to see. It seems to me that it's more of an educational center over anything, and I could tell that the ruler promoted and advocated education. There are schools and universities -- obviously only to cater men -- that teach many things, most particularly science. It smells a lot like the library, but with more old books and a bit more like body odor and animals. It's a shame that only men here can ...

Under the current ruler, people said he was envolved with the education and arts in empire for he encouraged it.There are schools here, prestigious schools where only the rich and intelligent men attend.

    Good yapping at the back. John had been stationed in Trawna for a former bank [Cora works for CIBC downtown] so he had more than a passing familiarity with the city. I was taking the mickey out of him for trashing Tim Horton's coffee and Canuck wines, suggesting he must have actually been deported from Canada. He did agree ...

    ... do mean magnificent, structure. I initially did a once around the arena area (a little spooky to think this was where so many met their fate), and then began to climb the myriad of staircases and walkways to take in just about every angle and every sight line in the place.
