I was “stuck”.  I wanted to learn about the Georgians’ life style, but it was not easy.  So what can I do? I took a vacation, I paid, I flew and now what :-) ?

OK, as I described in my previous post, there are so may abandoned homes which were so happy to let me in.  And believe me, I found some treasures which I am sharing with you here. More seriously, when I walk into an abandoned house, I find myself moving silently  tiptoeing as if I am going to meet an unexpected “surprise”. After all I am peeking into someone’s life. What I have discovered that when using my Western judgement, which I should learn to leave behind, the old fashioned homes, construction and décor were superb.  Beautiful furniture, simple designs and great craftsmanship; none of the plastic veneers used by many (when renovating their old and authentic homes) to lower the ceilings, cover the floors etc. The old houses TELL a story about families, sleeping arrangements, kitchens and old paraphernalia we collect from antique stores. They leave “souls” hanging on the walls; Where have they all gone?
