Wow, it's been a while since I've written, so I have a lot to catch up on. Sorry if this is a jumbled mess. I'll probably just go on rants when I remember stuff, so don't say I didn't warn you!

Apparently its a city with a long history, as least that is what peope kept telling us.. So slightly lost about how to get about with our quest, we asked at our local breakfast place. The woman, who took a liking to us, called a guy who was willing to drive us up to the ...
