            Briefly mentioned in Virginia Woolf’s book Mrs. Dalloway, Caterham is a town located in the Tandridge District of Surrey, England. This place looks pretty close to a town that someone would imagine to only exist in a storybook. Originally people settled in what is now known as Caterham-on-the-hill. The town really grew when the railroad gave people more access to resources outside of their area in 1856. The town was home of the Metropolitan Asylum for Imbeciles which was created in 1870. The thirteen houses and one chapel had a separate space for infectious diseases. It could hold close to 2,000 patients at once.

Some things never changed in this little town. For example, since it was built in 1866, the Norman church of St. Lawrence remains directly across the road from St. Mary’s, an Anglican church. St. John the Evangelist church was constructed in 1882 and is larger than the previous churches. St. John’s is also still standing today. The Caterham...

Baiae, named for the legendary Odysseus's helmsman, was an opulent ancient city located in what is now Campania, Italy. First mentioned by name in the second century BCE, it was known as a popular seaside resort in ancient Rome due in part to its sulfur springs and mild climate, as well as its location along the shore of what is now the Gulf of Puteoli. In her article for the BBC, Adrienne Bernhard describes Baiae as "the Las Vegas of the Roman Empire" due to the extravagance of what remains of the city: heated bathing pools, sprawling villas, and even a casino. Many famous persons of the ancient world visited or lived there, including Cicero, Virgil, Pliny the Younger, and emperors Claudius, Nero, Julius Caesar, Caesar Augustus, and Hadrian (the last of whom died there). In addition, Baiae - along with its neighboring town, Cumae - was known for hosting a sybil, or prophetess, who reportedly lived in a cave nearby and wrote the fabled Sybilline Books, which allegedly detailed the...

London is a city located in Europe. It is the capital of England and the United Kingdom and also thought to be one of the largest cities in the world (spanning 620 square miles). The City of London is very much influenced by culture, the economy, and travelers and tourists. London also has a unique type of underwater train service that connects the island to the mainland in Europe.

            Not only is London seen as one of the largest cities in the world, but it is also seen as the least religious. In fact, Christianity, the leading religion in London, (about 48 percent of the population) is not far ahead from being the most followed religion. Those who live in London and do not identify with a religion are a close second (about 20.5 percent of the population).

            Although London has been known for its large and non-religious population, London can also be seen as a country that develops many food choices and makes them their own. In the past, London has...
