The Medieval Bestseller
I read it somewhere on the Internet...

I write tonight from Louisville, KY, home of both the Kentucky Derby and the headquarters for my denomination, the Presbyterian Church (USA). The internet connection here is not so great, which is frustrating.

Last night in West Virginia Dad and I ate at this restaurant called the Dutchman's Daughter. We drove by it while we were trying to find where we were going to stay and, since I was talking so highly earlier of the Pennsylvania Dutch's ability to make amazing lemonade, we tried it (but neither of us ordered lemonade). What was interesting about going there was that it was clear that it is a local place, and it was clear that the patrons and wait staff were weirded out by the strangers from the big city. Case in point, the waitress' mom and grandma were eating at the table next to us.

Today's drive from West Virginia to Louisville, Kentucky was really easy. I think it was only 6 or 7 hours and was smooth sailing. The West Virginian and Eastern Kentucky landscapes were fairly boring; trees and mountains, but nothing spectacular about them. I've taken pictures - you'll see later when I upload them all. Tonight Dad and I went to Los Aztecas, a Mexican restaurant in Louisville. It was about as bland as you can imagine a Mexican restaurant being in the middle of the country. But my refried beans were delicious (and I'm not even a huge fan of refried beans!). Tomorrow we will drive to St. Louis, so I can almost guarantee that Dad will want to go out for ribs.

To tide you over, I'll try to upload bit by bit some photos from the past week of activity. Here are pictures from Danny's, Tracey's and my trip to the monuments in Washington DC.
