Nothing distinguishes memories from ordinary moments...

Only later do they become memorable by the scars they leave.

What culture (other than your own) do you find most interesting or intriguing? What draws you to this way of living? If you had the opportunity to move to a region where this culture was prevalent, would you do so? Why or why not?
Japan - I'm guessing that would be a popular answer, but I like the language, was learning it for a while, and the people have a British sense of decorum, politeness and self-effacing nature. I like the culture - not so much Manga although I love Studio Ghibli, but the sense of beauty, the old paintings, the hyperreality of Tokyo. Contradictions of modern and old, contrasts in public/private, even sometimes gender roles (well as we see them in the West). And they are pagan mostly, which is cool.

And yes I'd move there in a heartbeat.

And Ancient Greece - I noticed some people's entries travelled in time. I'd love those times and that culture...less happier with it if I was a woman (Ancient Greeks didn't treat women at all well), but I do feel the ancient world would fit me better than the current one? Graeco-Roman, or before, or Celt. Or Victorian times, but I fear that class would play a big part of whether I enjoyed that - in London, 1880's-90's.
