All Along the Rust Belt

After the bleak expanse of March, April has been merciful – a week off for Spring Break and a long weekend over Easter. I took this opportunity to go to Chicago and Buffalo, respectively. It was a good opportunity to see a lot of friends and family in a short amount of time, and explore some new territory (Buffalo) as well as somewhere I already love. It has been good to see long-lost friends, explore art museums, hear some poetry, eat Breakfast, drink grown-up drinks, and get rain in my hair in new cities.
