Hanging out where I went to college. Only. Posters I saw in dorm windows while walking though campus said "socialism sucks" and listened to students rant about communism and immigrants at two separate restaurants.

When you know all the tricks in your hotel room (hvac, lights, etc) you've been on the road too long.

Sunday 2 of 5 on the road. Looks like it might be a great day to visit the Omaha zoo.

It's been about a year now since we were in Utrecht. Oh how I wish we could've moved there. I'm still looking for alternatives but starting to realize I will probably die here.
