Last summer, Miss Bever and I decided to take a road trip to visit Miss Collins who had just moved to Indianapolis. Neither of us had been there before and Katy offered to let us crash at her place and explore the city. We drove the 9 hours, stopping at the halfway point for lunch in St. Louis for Fitz's soda and burgers on the Delmar Loop.
The drive was easy and the conversation was fun. Katy welcomed us to town by showing us around. It was rainy and stormy while we were there, but it was a safe city to explore and we kept ourselves entertained.
We explored the riverwalk, and found one of the infamous 'INDY' signs for tourists. We visited a beautiful cemetery on the north end of town that overlooked the skyline from afar. We tried a tea shop and a German Restaurant. Pork fritter sandwiches are the big thing in those parts, so I had to have one.
One afternoon, we trekked across town to the Kurt Vonnegut museum. If you didn't know, he is an author (Slaughterhouse Five, Sirens of Titan, etc.) and the little museum has memorabilia of his life and lots of his books for sale. I bought a sweatshirt with a typewriter on it. And so it goes.
Indianapolis was fun, but my favorite part of the trip was our very last day. We decided to explore a much larger city, just a few hours away as Katy had to work and there were no baseball games anywhere nearby.
Please check back tomorrow to hear all about my favorite part of our trip!
