Ziggurats

“Contrary to popular belief, Ziggurats were not some crazy kind of architecture” Willow waves his hands dramatically.

I confessed i did not know what the Ziggurats were.  Willow retorted only half seriously “Dont you know your ancient history, Paxus?”

not crazy? not sure

Later, Willow and i were in the elevator at the fancy hotel.  One of the Knights of Columbus conventioning here was with us on the long trip to the tenth floor.
“Who built the Ziggurates?’ i asked my son between 3 and 4

“The Sumarians and the Babylonians” he replies between 8 and 9

The Columbian Knight thinks i am quizzing.  In fact i want him to teach me.
