... We strolled around the little tourist center and looked at a model of the mansion. We read on its informational tablet that it took five years to build the model. We were shocked to hear that at first, but then when the model automatically snapped shut to reveal the profile of the house, and then open itself back up again to show individual rooms, we knew that the five years were probably spent attaching tiny hydraulics. Nice job, five-year-model-builders.

Thanks to careful record keeping ...

We got back to the Metro station just in time to see the sun going down behind the Masonic Temple.
... found the ticket booth and purchased our passes to roam George's old stomping grounds for the day. The passes included total access to the estate and a time slot, which determined when you could tour the mansion. Inside the mansion, they displayed multiple rooms in which significant historical figures sat down to speak with George. It also displayed his bedroom and the very bed in which he passed. His room was arranged closely ...
