We left St. Louis Saturday morning, early (about 5:30) and drove to Kansas City, got there about noon (we tend to take a lot of stops along the way).
Then we went back to the hotel and relax for a bit. We found out that the hotel has a free shuttle, so we decided to take that for the evening so my roommate wouldn’t have to drive and look for parking in a strange town.
I thought the King Tut exhibit was awesome, although the voice actor who played Howard Carter on the audio tour was kind of over the top. (You don’t have to say everything in a voice trembling with excitement.)
Got back to the the hotel and went to bed.
Sunday morning we took a nice leisurely drive back, stopping in Blackwater, MO to see The Telephone Museum. (Actually, we just stopped in Blackwater to look at the shops, I had no idea that there was such a thing as a Telephone Museum. Even though it wasn’t open on Sunday, the fact that such a thing exists, out in the middle of nowhere, is pretty awesome.)
A good trip, and it helped clear my mind. I did a lot of thinking about my books, and where they are going.
Okay, back to work.
