Long way from home

Posted on Monday, July 31st, 2006.

Day 1 of our 660 mile trip from Ames, Iowa to Garden City, Kansas: We decided to swing by Brooklyn (Missouri, not our hometown in New York) for some lunch. All we found was some farmland, a few houses, and this one abandoned building.

Still hungry and feeling a little homesick, we pulled over in Manhattan, Kansas, home of Kansas State University. It’s not an island and there’s no subway, but we did enjoy a nice dinner in the Aggieville neighborhood – home to several shops, bars, and restaurants near campus.
