The best part of visiting Charleston was visiting the Drayton Hall Plantation. Before the tour started, we sat for a half hour and listened to the history of not only the plantation & the history of the owners, but also the history of the enslaved. How and why they were brought over from Africa. We were told of what they endured on the journey over. Learning more of the physical pain the enslaved went through (especially the ones working the rice fields) left me speechless. No one hardly spoke on the tour besides our guide, including my girls. It was as if Layla & Vera naturally had no desire to play or be silly here. They tried to take it all in. Even after the tour was over, we caught Vera hanging back to ask the guide 20 more questions.
