I’ve already wrote a post about the Freedom trail, but it was a freezing Sunday in February. I preferred saving my fingers and let my camera in my backpack along the 2.5 miles path. This week, as the weather was like summertime, I thought it was perfect to finish this tour.
My knowledge of the history of the United States looks like Frankenstein’s head: a strange mix. How’s that? Maybe I’ve been watching too much movies, and they slowly shaped my mind: Dances with Wolves, westerns movies, The Godfather, Good Morning Vietnam, Sex and the City… I also learnt some concepts in High School, such as Sunbelt or Megalopolis. I read books which make me fear slavery, prohibition, guns, death penalty. To sum up, I came to the US with a messy knowledge of the country and its history, full of urban legends and mythologies.
