Through the Roof, Underground


  1. The very first slide in the series is a picture of the interior of a Soviet-era Metro train, which are still in service in most major cities in Central/Eastern Europe, including here in Budapest. I ride to work on one that looks just like that every morning.

    Going with the theme of the previous post, interestingly enough the Mithraic temple, or Mithraeum, unlike other Roman structures, was somewhat dug out of the earth, so you had to descend the steps into a sort of grotto. And the roof was fairly low, contributing to the "cave" effect. So, if you had a transcendent experience there, you would go "through the roof, underground."

  2. Normally not my cup of tea, but I'm really digging this tune. Thanks for sharing.
