steel city, first take

starting to count down the days before the wedding.  easy week at work? … please.  juggling like a circus act.  wanted to clear out some of the backlog from the trip tina and I took to pittsburgh over memorial day weekend, and realized all over again what a fantastic place the burgh is.

yeah it’s a sleepy town with not that much going on but there’s a lot of architectural gems in this city waiting to be discovered and appreciated.  in terms of a quiet getaway for a weekend, I can’t think of many better places to hide out in and explore at your own pace.  I think that’s about it, though, any more than a weekend and the quietness would begin to grow overwhelming.

you can probably walk through town on a saturday evening and not see more than two dozen people … it’s like K street in DC with much much better architecture.  a delightful fortress of solitude.
