    ... and warm. The weather was not so good this morning. It was only 14 degrees today.

    We picked up our car and headed south east to Washington. We drove through towns with names like Concord, Salamanca, Custer City, Springville, Johnsonburg and Ellicottville. Just out of Ellicottville we saw a woman pushing a wheelbarrow with a sign saying Walking across America. It turns out that not only Australia has silly people ...

    ... middle--an industrial civilization that hasn't really moved forward, but hasn't suffered major decay either. I guess the poor land management is what bothered me the most.

    ... cathedral (which I first mistake for a courthouse). The blocks approaching downtown are pretty shabby... to be expected. Then there's the wide multi-track railway cutting through the middle of the city, where I catch a really nice sunrise shot. with the rail lines converging far off in the horizon.

    ... how's the economy here in this area?" "It's a retirement area, really.... there are some jobs. A factory nearby is hiring 6 or 7 people... and there's some work at expanding the Del Grosso amusement park..." One thing there doesn't seem to be much at all here is agriculture. I've seen some grassy meadows that might be used to feed animals, but nothing more. I reach Bellwood, my next "official" town ...
