My final report from our trip, if you are still insterested:
We went with Abe’s family to the Eastern market and had blueberry buckwheat pancakes. We look tired!
The FDR memorial was pretty cool to see. We took a ranger guided tour which ended up being over an hour long but we learned a lot of interesting info about him.
It was designed to be an interactive memorial…except most people don’t realize they are supposed to touch or the fountains were designed for wading in. One of the walls was even designed for people to bring clay to make molds or paper to do tracings from the wall. How would you know that if you didn’t take a ranger tour?
We walked around Georgetown.
And found Ben’s Chili Bowl.
It was a tiring trip with so much to see! It was surprisingly nice to come back to quiet Iowa City.
