On day 1, Bri and I drove 8 hours to Pittsburgh, PA. We left around 9:30 in the morning, stopped for lunch/gas in Ohio, and made it here by 6! We made really great time! I started off the drive through Indiana and Ohio and then we switched after lunch. I've gotta say, Bri got the better scenery:
We checked into our hotel, which is pretty nice for the price, and then headed out for dinner downtown. Except, then we ran into a problem: apparently on the weekends, there is awful tunnel construction that prevents anyone from going downtown. You have to take awful detours and it takes forever. The lady at the front desk gave us some good dinner options in the area instead, and we decided on The Green Mango, a thai restaurant that had good reviews. Plus, it was across the street and we coud walk there. The food was fresh and pretty good. I ate my food so fast that I forgot to take a picture (gasp!).
The traffic was pretty awful, but we finally made it! Plus, we saw some really cool bridges along the way.
|Tunnels: not under construction on the return trip!|
|Plus, I hope to finish this...|
it's amazing what you can do when you have to sit for 4 hours
