Living in Virginia satisfied UN’s passion for American history. We visited Montecello, home of Thomas Jefferson in the beginning of the year. This time we are visiting Mount Vernon, home of George Washington. I like Jefferson’s home, it was the OG smart home before Alexa. He installed a switch that allowed him to open his bedroom doors from his bed, an elevator that delivers wine from his cellar to the living room, and many other automated things.
But I also adore the beautiful view of the Potomac river from Washington’s back porch, his farm and petting zoo. They said sometimes there are pigs on the property because Martha Washington enjoyed ham, but we didn’t see any pigs that day.
At the end of the guided tour, I wanted to ask where is the cherry tree chopped down by George Washington, but UN and fellow visitors in our tour group asked many questions regarding Mount Vernon’s architecture and history. Next time you guys go, can you find out for me where the cherry tree is please?
