And Going Greener

We drive down to Denver, Colorado on Friday. The drive takes us through the beautiful Rocky Mountains, alongside the Colorado River. It's quiet lovely. Denver is a very green city, lots of trees and other pretty plants (Michelle: not a good city for you to live in obviously). The suburban areas blend seamlessly into the downtown area, which we explore on Saturday night. 16th Street Mall is a mall that occupies all of 16th Street (I wonder where they got the mall's name from though), it's really cool. We take the bus down the length of the mall, and sit alongside passengers that are sharing a blunt. That is apparently legal here but I'm still confused about the children that were with them that seem high too. My understanding is that you have to be 21 years of age for that kind of recreation. #keepitclassycolorado.
Also, for those of you wondering, no we did not smoke at all, you need a Colorado driver's license to do that. Sheesh guys, Miriam and I don't do stuff like that. I'm insulted you even asked.
All of this driving and the heat has got me feeling a bit sick. But we have a week left of this craziness, so I take (legal!) drugs known as DayQuil, and power through.
Today we leave Colorado and drive East to Salina, Kansas. The transition from peace-y Colorado to the Bible Belt is apparent immediately by the billboards lining the highway such as "It's a Child, not a Choice", "Jesus is Real", "Adoption not Abortion", "Thanks Mom for Choosing Life", and "Jesus Trusts in You!". Jesus clearly doesn't know me.
