TRAVEL THE WORLD - CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, USA
In 1996, when we visited Charleston, South Carolina, we took a long walk through the historic district. Many of the old houses featured verandahs like the one in the photo. It was easy to imagine the elegantly dressed people of years ago drinking their mint juleps while sequestered within the cool shade of the verandah. On our walk, we stopped at the city hall, where a very nice lady gave us a half-hour talk on the interesting history of Charleston.
