You say that as if I said "of course no Americans have ever left the country or seen a castle"... sorry if it came across that way, I simply meant that there aren't any castles in America so IF anyone who lives there has never been out of the country (which is perfectly believable, I've never been out of Europe), they wouldn't have seen a castle. Not making generalizations at all. My point was mainly that even if someone's never seen a castle they probably still know all about them.
I didn't make it to Europe until I was almost 40, so while, yeah, I knew what a castle was, I didn't really grasp what they were like. I'm not sure my parents ever saw one, their travels led them to Asia and Africa, but only incidentally to Europe.

Thank you! I tried to include the picture, but it acted like it was going to break the whole forum, so if anyone wants to see the sandwolpy, they'll have to scroll back up.
