Scotland Lesson #2
July 7, 2012
Our country is young…. crazy young.
I didn’t exactly learn this lesson on THIS trip….
…but check out some of these castles and ruins. 500-600 years old. I remember our country’s bicentennial like it was yesterday. (this could be because my mom dressed my sisters and me up in period 1776 costumes complete with bonnets….but I digress)
No, I didn’t LEARN that our country is crazy young on this trip – I was just reminded of this fact.
The first time this really hit home was 2001 when we were here:
We were in The Colosseum the same week that Market Square Arena was demolished.
Poof…. just like that….
A 27 year old building – demolished. Disposable Construction…
27 years… hmmm.
