Well, I'm traveling for business again. This is a rough month for both me and my family. I have 4 scheduled business trips!
Rather than telling you where I am, I thought I'd play a little game. I'll post a few pictures while I'm traveling, and let's see if you can guess where in the world I am?
I just arrived at my hotel this morning and have a meeting this evening. I'm pretty tired and would love a nap but if I did that, I'd be awake all night. Which would be a really bad idea. So, as I usually do on the first day, I take some time for some sightseeing.
I took the subway and then had a bit of a walk to a famous tourist site. On the right you can see a typical building I saw along my way. The weather's a bit crisp and there's a slight fog that I hope will burn off before too long.
The photo below is where I went sightseeing. Pretty impressive, isn't it. (At this point, if you're guessing that I'm not in Indianapolis, you'd be right!)
I toured inside and then went to see the beautiful grounds around the building.
And this beautiful fountain and buildings can be seen from the back of the building:
While I was walking around the grounds, I came across an older couple that were feeding the birds and squirrels. The animals were so tame that the squirrels would come right up to the lady and take peanuts from her hand that she held out to them. And birds would actually land on her hand and peck bread crumbs held in her palm!
The squirrels are quite a bit different looking that the standard variety around my house. They're almost black and the ears have little tufts of hair growing out of them.
Do you know what city and country I'm in?
Post your guesses in the comments and I'll check back. If no one guesses, I'll add some more photos and hints!
