I've really enjoyed my stay in the Midwest so far. This is a first for me, with the exception of Chicago. I can't get over how genuine everyone is out here. Our friend said it best, as it's a little unsettling at times, since back home in Virginia everyone is cynical and not the most hospitable. Everyone was sweet, right down the the cashier at Urban Outfitters and everyone wants to know your story. It's really sweet. It almost makes me wish we lived in Lawrence.
And another thing I love about this place? The abundance of Bubble Tea. It's everywhere in the Midwest and I never even knew it existed before. I love it more than words can describe and somehow I will need to get another one before the day is over.
The days in Lawrence will be spent vintage/antique shopping (because that's what I do), visiting Eudora for the experience of seeing where the Get Up Kids produced their albums, going to parks, people watching, and just enjoying all that Kansas has to offer.
