Monument to Honor Scottish Immigrants
I toured Independence Hall yesterday. I wish it could have been self-guided, as for the first time ever I found the park ranger guide annoying. He kept asking us questions instead of informing us in a pleasant manner. People don't like to speak up in big tour groups (80 per tour). He seemed like a pompous teacher who likes to belittle his students. I hope you don't get him as your guide if you visit what has to be one of the most important American places. I would have preferred sacred silence.
Today I visit art museums before I attend the opening of the conference mid-afternoon.
