Day 40

We both slept it out today, feeling wrecked from a busy week of traveling and sight seeing. When we started to move, it was time for lunch. I got a few minutes in down by the pool and then we went to Chipotle for a bite. It's the place that Aido introduced us to in Orlando and it is great. Their tag line is 'ingest no evil', which is not only good advice but summarises their conviction to serve nothing but fresh food. The only downside is that I wouldn't suggest taking anyone there as a first date or that you are trying to impress. The food is every bit messy as it is good and you can't help but looking like a total eejit by the time you finished your meal.

After breakie / lunch, we went to the laundry mat because we were both running out of clothes. That and there seems to have been a bit of a judy in the jammer the last few days which may or may not be our dirty clothes.

We both chilled at the hotel today. I went for a swim and got a bit of sun for a little while.

At 6 1/2 bells we got in the car and drove to Mt. Adams, which is a neighborhood in the north of Cincinnati. We had a bit of trouble finding it but when we did the views were amazing.

We drove to Gregory Street and had a look around to see what was going on. There was absolutely nothing! This guy was the most lively person we came across.

We settled into a pub called Longworths, had the chatsies with the bar staff, ate burgers, threw some darts and had a few beers. But when we realised we were keeping everyone awake (at 9:00), we decided to go home.

On the way back down from Mt. Adams, we got the last few seconds of the sunset.

Then it was back to the hotel for a bit of kip and some recovery from a busy week.
