Disappointing!

The 2 hours spent with Bill was not my favorite. Highlights were the theater and the slave museum. Bill spent quite a bit of time complaining about Charleston City politics and how covid restrictions are bankrupting him. Understandably he is angry about the situation, I just wish he would have spent more time on Charleston history.
