After a lot of hassle this week and a long bus ride, I'm finally in beautiful Kentucky. My first impression riding down I-71 down from Cincy to the station in downtown Louisville is that Kentucky has a lot of beauty and none of the sprawl of most cities. Louisville looked as good as ever. I hope to make several visits to the Ville during my time here (which may or may not be awhile.)

Getting to my hotel in Elizabethtown was very interesting. When I got off we called a cab to take us to the hotel and we got a cabbie from Cincinnati and he said E-town was full of weirdos. My counter-argument was that the DC area was full of weirdos and E-town will probably seem tame in comparison. We had a great experience with a resturant that doesn't usually deliver volunteered to bring our food to our hotel.

I'm looking forward to living here. Now I just need to find a job, hopefully close-by in Hardin County.

Here are some pics I snapped.

Where are all the people? It looks lovely, but deserted.

Most were working. I assure you there are plenty of people on the scenes where the photos were taken during non-working hours.

Yep, I arrived and left Louisville during 2-3pm. People were likely still at work.

There must be good employment rates in Louisville.
Nice to see somewhere so quiet, it looks peaceful.

People don't walk a lot in Kentucky, we have a lot of land and we put it to good use.

On that note, Kentucky isn't the most southern of places, but I hope you enjoy it

I'm coming from Northern Virginia which is in no way Southern except for the fact that it's in the state of Virginia, Kentucky Southern is great for me.
