The Bronx

Yesterday I paid $5.50 for the privilege of spontaneously sightseeing as I drove through the Bronx. I did cross two lovely bridges in my travels though, so I guess that was kind of nice. It was the New Jersey Turnpike that saved me. I was supposed to be in New Jersey, you see, not in the Bronx.

I still can't stop myself from singing Simon & Garfunkel in my head every time I see a sign for the New Jersey Turnpike.

The New Jersey Turnpike took me right to where I wanted to be, AND it only cost me $4.50 for the privilege.

I kind of like Utah, where you can get lost for free.

:-) I love driving through areas I don't know. I actually kinda enjoy getting lost sometimes. Like when I was in Boston looking for a hotel for the night a few years ago... I drove for an hour and a half, got locked into a parking garage and finally found a motel about 10 min from where I had originally started! That was fun at 10pm! Hope you have a great trip!

What are you doing there? Obviously I need to be filled in.

I went out for a 2-day orientation for my graduate program. I'm back in Utah now. Hooray!
