US #3: Back in Virginia (April 2009)

The last couple of days of my stay in the US I spent in Virginia. I dedicated a full day to the works of Thomas Jefferson, another patriotic hero but also an influential architect. I visited 3 of his major works: Monticello, the University of Virginia and Poplar Forest.

US #2: Kentucky & Tennessee (April 2009)

The second leg of my Eastern USA tour brought me to the states of Kentucky and Tennessee, to where the USA's real strength lies if it comes to tourist destinations: National Parks. I visited both Mammoth Cave and the Great Smoky Mountains.

US #1: Pennsylvania & Virginia (April 2009)

I started my 2 week tour of the US at the states of Pennsylvania and Virginia, two of the most prominent in US (colonial) history. Here I visited Independence Hall in Philadelphia and two sites on the Tentative List: Mount Vernon and Fallingwater (a Frank Lloyd Wright building).
