Each month, Down East editors select our favorite response to “Where in Maine?” Here is our favorite letter from August’s photo.
I was the sole visitor at Old Fort Western one day several years ago and was given an informative tour by a knowledgeable docent. As we finished up, another visitor arrived — a man who spoke only Russian. Not to be deterred, the docent took out her cell phone, opened a translation app, and was able to provide the same experience for him that I had. An interesting contrast of using modern technology while standing in a colonial fort of the 1700s.
