The existence of witches raises curiosity as, actually, they existed and are still seen here and there, perhaps. You can see their settlements where they really lived and died, that is, Salem, MA. I participated in my teacher’s tour of Salem with classmates. Of course, we went in October, but were not so foolish as to go on Halloween. The important information which I learned from this visit  is how English molted over time. We can observe this from the changing orthography on the tombstones. It was very much exciting and interesting. Anyway, this sketch is from the harbor, which was of great importance as Salem was a hub of trading in the 18th and early 19th centuries. The mansions and grand houses that spread out from the harbor are witness to this.
