Hisham’s Palace

Traveling is also literature: I have just described this wonderful Roman mosaic in the book, so I decided to look it up on Google. It is curious that I still remember it perfectly, from the first time I saw it, 46 years ago.

It is located in the Hisham’s Palace, in Jericho, Palestine.

I hate hierarchy… and authority… As a troop (laugh), we visited a wonderful palace in Jericho, which had the most marvelous Roman mosaic on the floor. But our ‘captain’ was such an asshole he wouldn’t give us time to visit the ruins…”
