Mayflower II, Plymouth, MA

Almost four hundred years ago, 102 English pilgrims came across the Atlantic and sailed to Plymouth on the continent of America with the famous ship Mayflower. The original ship doesn’t exist any more — nowadays, a full-scale reproduction sits in the Plymouth harbor quietly for tourists to visit. I guess everybody will be stunned by its size: how can 102 people live in such a small ship for such a long time! At such kind of moments, you really have to appreciate the courage and determination of these ancestors.
