Panem Et Circenses

Roma’s monologue from the latest chapter was what interested me the most more than any bloodshed depicted. (Yes, even more than Urie getting owned.) In particular her light reference to a latin phrase. 

Bread and Circuses or “Panem Et Circenses”, it’s a phrase used to describe appeasement of the masses, most particularly in the form of government. That public approval is best gained not through exemplary of excellent public service and police, but through distraction and satisfaction of the most immediate and shallow desires of the populace.

You stood there in the room staring at the little baby girl in a carrier ever so carefully set on the Sheriff’s desk. All she was did was sleeping through what you would consider the most life changing and heartbreaking thing. When Sheriff Stilinski called you into the station following a huge devastation in your life you didn’t expect this.

You twisted your ring on your wedding finger as the repercussions of losing your best friend impacted your life. Yesterday you were just a new wife of barely two months and now you were a mother also. And not in the traditional sense you had envisioned. Instead of happy, exhausted tears after a birth your face was painted with streams of watered down makeup and pain filled heart.

“W-what happened exactly?” You meekly questioned as a social worker stood stationary near the baby.

Der Schrecksee in the Allgäu is Germany’s highest alpine lake at 1813 m. From the saddle, you can cross into Austria. Lake Schrecksee lies squeezed in the Bavarian Alps. Especially during summer, this location is popular for a swim in the cool alpine lake. To get there, drive towards Hinterstein and follow the main street to the large car park at the end. Leave your car (paying the fee) and follow the signs for “Hinterbachhof”. Follow the restricted road for an easy 20 mins until you reach a power house on your left. The trailhead is after crossing the bridge on your left at coordinates 47.454759, 10.438807. It’s signposted but a little hidden, and you have to climb over a fence. From there it’s a contentious uphill hike. The area is used for cattle in the summer months. Note: Officially it’s not allowed to camp up there; German law only allows to bivy, so it’s really important to leave no trace and never leave your gear unpacked during the day.
