PBC0264: love of homeland

PBC 264 conveys a visceral love of a city by marking favorite locations, whether the “Jerusalem Cathedral” in Petrograd (which, so far, does not appear to have existed (W29)) or the Spassky Tower in the Moscow Kremlin (W449). Some instances perform an obeisance to the city, through remembering the location (W29) or verbally kissing the ground (W453). This PBC and PBC 265 are quite similar, though PBC 264 is more private and personal and maps specific city locales.
