AKA "Still Standing After All Those Fears"
Cleveland recently hosted the RNC. For months we have been hearing how the event would be tumultuous, at best, and dangerous and destructive at worst. It was none of that. Although there was protesting, everything went well.
So well, that we thought about going down on the last afternoon. Unfortunately, a few crises at work put an end to that. Instead we went down the Saturday afterwards and played tourist.
I used to know the area well, but it has been quite a while since I visited. It was ninety-five degrees the day we visited. We wandered slowly, checking out the remnants of the convention. Other than the banners and signs, not much was left. The recent renovation to Public Square, new buildings scattered throughout, and sprucing up of old landmarks has the city looking great!
We enjoyed our time down there so much that a few days later I took a day off from work. We repeated the trip, exploring areas we missed on that first day. Those are pictures for another post.
