It's day four, & yes, that's right,
I just tagged myself in state number four.
I'm never sure how strongly to trust the
logic of Wayne's World, but according
to Alice Cooper, Milwaukee means 'the
good land'. I didn't reaaaally see enough
to judge, but a place that throws a carnival
full of colourful chair lifts, gorgeous views
of Lake Michigan & little kids with fairy floss,
then so easily contrasts that with men in
real German get-up walking around the
streets drinking out of Das Boot?
Now that's more than alright by me.
I feel as if I'm on track with my 'let's visit as many
American states as I possibly can' task. Four states
in four days, I'd say that's a solid effort. Today we went
to the German Fest in Wisconsin. I thought I would
have had enough of the German culture by now, But
it was actually an amazing day. Stinkin' hot & in all
honesty, it wasn't quite worth the 2hour drive it took
to get there, but I think there's no better atmosphere
than that of a festival. We got too hot in the sun, so we
went running through the sprinklers with all the kids.
I felt like I was 8 years old again.
Tomorrow's my first day on duty though,
so it's back to playing adult.
Wish me luck guys!
