Monticello

visited here back in 2002, have only travelled twice since then, maybe it is time for another journey, however without a current passport I may have to limit myself to Canada, which is no bad thing.

this house was designed by Jefferson and is beautiful, thoughtful, and much smaller than I had anticipated….

you can see the two wing buildings on the edges of frame left and right….running underground between the two wings and the central main house are storage, work rooms and servants (slaves) rooms…

the house is situated on the top of a hill and has wonderful views in several directions.
