Immediately when I returned from Ibague to Charlotte, my family left on a road trip to Madison, Wisconsin, to see my sister, Mikal, and her boyfriend, Gavin. Here also I have a meeting with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s graduate programs.
Before we left, it deluged at my home. Kay (really our neighbor, but actually our sister in everything but blood), Danielle, Griffin, and I ran in the rain and I snapped this photo of Kay. (All photos below are taken and edited on my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S4, using either Samsung’s editing tools or VSCO Cam’s editing tools).
We drove from Charlotte to somewhere in Indiana, I think, at night. After staying the night in a hotel somewhere, we left the next morning reinvigorated. I was amused by this sign in the window. Who knew my Spanish skills would come in handy so soon?!
At breakfast, we found Rita Skeeter at age 80.
Having never driven through most of the United States, I was enthralled by the scenery. This photo just has the contrast enhanced, and that’s all. I felt like I was in a scene from Oz.
We pulled onto the side of the road to see the windmills (which I need to invest in, like, yesterday), and I snapped this photo.
And my personal favorite:
After we arrived we ate at Vintage Brewing Company, where I had the most delicious burger with fried sweet potatoes, hazelnut puree, and some cherry jam thing, accompanied with a dark beer that complimented it wonderfully. Quite delicious and entirely American, which I’ve been craving for a solid seven weeks.
