Abstract

Inspired by cultural geographer David Crouch’s description of heritage as a journey,3 this paper looks at how the narrator’s physical and mental voyage towards the old capital of her childhood incorporates multiple spatiotemporal layers of urban cultural heritage in order to reach a deeper understanding of the living historical city she calls home.
