Wink I am new to this website. I came across it on the Hephastion website (the main one, Dr. Zimmerman's). Anyway, I'm anxious to join the reading group and have read up on my Plutarch. However, I fear that our time zones may be a problem.
Eh, one never knows though! As we say down here in Louisiana "Let the good times roll." I'm down on my French today and can't translate right now. Selket

Selket, welcome to the board and also welcome to the reading group. It's great that you decided to join us and I hope you stay with us for long discussing about Alexander and the sources, in this case, Plutarch. It's great to have a new point of view on things as our intention is to contribute with everyone's ideas to understanding Alexander's life and personality.
Welcome again! I hope you enjoy being here.

You should go Adriv. It's really nice, especially during Mardi Grass.

I LOVE New Orleans - just a little 8 hour drive from home! We used to go at least a couple times a year before kids (those are the BK years!). Alejandro, I suppose you went during Mardi Gras? I've been at that time myself - although, probably before you. It's incredible! Another great time for New Orleans is Halloween. I remember when we were there on Halloween there was this guy dressed like Marilyn Monroe (yes, a guy) and we were on our balcony looking over Burbon Street - anyway, these sailors came up to this guy and started picking on him and he took off his high heel spike shoe and beat them up with it! This may sound very strange, but it was hilarious! Laughing Oh well, just thought about that when I read about New Orleans and had to share it!
