Wow, that is old! Have a lovely weekend Adam

interesting 1565 wow
I've been to St. Augustine. They claim that they are the oldest city in the US, but there is another town that claims that as well. During a tour, the tour guide who also claimed to be a historian, said that there is truth to it. It had to do with the certain time periods and the Spanish owning Florida while the Northern states were already independent.
I've been there, way back in 1981. Old section of the town nicely preserved for tourists. Of course, by now, even the new sections I visited is old.
Athens, Rome etc are a bit older, however in the "once Great USA" - now the laughing stock of the rest of the world, surely there were permanent native Indian settlements which have been conveniently ignored????????????????Colin
Aha! This could be another question from Alexa! :-)
Thanks for reminding me of St. Augustine, Adam. I tend to forget about it, especially when I think about Port Royal, Nova Scotia (1605).
