After a 3.5 hour airline delay on Thursday, I flew from the hot and humid south to the much cooler Midwest. On Friday, I drove down to Butler University to visit my sister who goes to college there. I had 3 hours to practice my in-car solos…I won’t be winning the Voice anytime soon. Indiana has not changed much since I was last there; the sky was full of grey clouds and the fields were brimming with endless rows of golden corn.
After hanging out at the university on Friday, we went to downtown Indy and explored the area a little bit. It was a great time. Although the grey skies and amount of corn seemed to not change, the entire downtown area sure did! I love being a tourist, taking pictures and soaking up everything a city has to offer. Indianapolis was no different. Our first stop was the lively La Plaza’s Fiesta Indianapolis. The music was loud, fun and full of passion; our noses filled with many flavors, including churros and chimichangas coming from the many food trucks. Afterwards, we strolled through the city, admiring the architecture, before feasting on a classic Italian dinner at Buca di Beppo.
I would love to get another opportunity to come visit and discover more!
