In them orning I wnet for breakfast with my uncle and aunt.

From Des Moines I drove 90 minutes to visit the University of Iowa.  It was my first time back in ten years.  I was very excited!  I drove past Mayflower dorm (2nd year), then past the President's residence, Currier dorm (1st year), and down Clinton Street where I walked through the area in which I had classes throughout my four years.  I visited the Old Capitol Building and walked to the Union.  It brought back so many memories.  Everywhere I looked I saw images of the past.  I was surprised how many new bars and clubs there were.  I visited the Jave House where I spent almost all of my study time for four years.  I walked by the Que, but they weren't open yet.  I went for a beer and pizza at the Airliner for old times sake.

I got back in my car and continued east on I80.  I stopped to visit Herbert Hoover National Historic Site.  I visited where he and his wife are buried and I also visited his birthplace cottage.

I continued driving southeast for three hours and stopped for the night in Springfield, Illinois.
