... we decided to wander back to the car and leave the city to the dedicated followers of passion. (Boom boom!) It was then that Brian spotted the dome of the Shrine Basilica only a couple of hundred metres away, so we headed in that direction.

Maybe shared "popcorn" and over time their descendants migrated to Eastern Europe and Spain/South America until we met in the US 2,000 years later. Makes you think!
