      really shows us how short US history is.

      I remember being in Tintagel, where legend has it King Arthur was born – it was abandoned a thousand years ago. There was also a visit to a British pub that was 400 years old – no one gave its age a second thought. Just a normal old building.

      , I do like the name pescovino – though maybe pescobitter might be more accurate 😉

        True and we don’t even respect the history we do have! Think about how many historical things have been torn down.

          I suspect that much of what was originally built in the US wasn’t built with the mindset of countries that have existed for a thousand years.  Of course, refitting with minor details like plumbing, electricity, and heating would be non-trivial too . . .

          The Isle of Man kept Tynwald, the meeting place of the oldest parliament in the world at a thousand years or so. Though they do have a more modern building now!
