We're staying in this motel for a week while our RV gets a new transmission. They gave us a 10% discount right off the bat and the woman behind the counter even offered to help me carry stuff up to my room. The room is clean, fully stocked, and in the midst of this horrible heat wave, the a/c cools down the room immediately. They allow pets, so we were able to bring our cat with us for only a $10 charge!

Once in Shepherdsville, we had an amazing dinner at ...
... afternoon ending with a delicious steak dinner cooked by Bill accompanied by corn on the cob we brought with us from Jarrettsville. It was difficult to say goodbye since our chances to get together are few.
Since I didn't have many pictures from today's travels, I put on a few of inside our home on wheels.
... golf carts that they ride up to the Dairy Queen and down one block to the river to eat their soft serve with a view. I guess this river is used for shipping and receiving as well as fishing and recreation. A giant boat pushing a dozen or more cargo units passed a couple times. I've never seen one of these, and to me it resembled a train but for water travel. It was interesting. When it got dark, the boat shined a giant extremely bright spotlight on the water ...
... and I could feel my pace and the pace of the people and life slowing down. It also confirmed my thoughts on why the people of Ayacucho just walk past me avoiding eye contact and just going on about their business, These people, including the older population, couldn't smile more, and gave everyone a handshake. I got a big handshake from Luis as he left, from the bellhop, from the taxi driver and even from my waitress. Even saw an old lady great another ...
