I have to admit that there isn't much to do around here and I've been missing Korean food and sushi and Indian buffets and cooking at home but it's been quite an experience to be immersed into this country, plains, corn fields and pastures type of atmosphere for a good chunk of time. I think that I'll be thrown back out here after my trip to France; nothings certain yet. But if I am, hopefully by then, the summer weather will be here to stay and the grass will be a little greener.
The speed limit varies out here from as slow as 25 MPH in town to as fast as 75 MPH on certain highways, which is the highest I've seen, from what I can remember of my driving life. I have yet to see a cop setting a speed trap though which is a good thing for me. With the roads being so flat and straight, it's easy to end up at 100 MPH; maybe that's just me.
By the way, if you're wondering, the photo above and the photo below were taken miles apart but you'd never know it, right? Everything around here looks the same and despite driving the same route several days in a row, I still rely on my GPS a ton because there are no landmarks to help me out. All of the pastures and fields look identical, at least in my eyes. You can see for miles and miles, but all you see are fields.
I was going for a walk one afternoon - I need a little exercise for bikini season, you know - and I came across this random ol' fish in the dirt. It scared the crap out of me because I almost stepped on it. It didn't smell, so it was probably fresh and must've been tossed just minutes before I found it. What a waste, right? I hope that at least a flock of birds made a meal out of it.
All right, so the next few shots make me incredibly happy because after a full week of fussing over the baby calves I kept seeing here and there, I was finally able to get some snaps. I had the perfect opportunity and I seized it hard.
If you ever plan on coming out here, can I suggest you plan a trip for the springtime?I'm totally biased because I'm obsessed with these calves, but seriously, don't you think little baby animals are a valid reason? So freakin' cute, man. So freakin' cute.
