Back from the down there...

Well, as it turns out, Iowa really is pretty dull. But I do hve some highlights to share with you, my beloved readers.

There is a restaurant in Decorah, IA that has a burrito called "Mr. King." Now, I know there are places that advertise how huge their burritos are, but this place doesn't even give you a warning. No, the name suggests that perhaps this is a well stuffed bit o burrito, but it does not prepare you for the actual arrival of the meal.

The burrito is comical. It's a novelty sized burrito. Really. I wish I'd taken a picture of it. It's about a foot long and about 6 inches in diameter. Lordy, it was massive. But it was also tastey and gave me the joy of leftovers.

Since it's the beginning of fall I got to see the beautiful sights that small, midwestern towns provide. The bunches of multicolored trees were quite beautiful. That's why I love fall. And the crisp, fresh air. Mmm...

The biggest downside was the fact that if I'd wanted to purchase any amenaties I'd pretty mcuh be forced to shop at Walmart. Thankfully I didn't need to support that establishment during my stay.
