Columbus is Photogenic

I got up at 2:30 AM yesterday, finally got to my hotel in Columbus (after a delay in Denver) around 5 PM, met with 3 senators last night, then gave testimony today at the Ohio Environment and Natural Resources Committee, which is trying to figure out which of two septic bills to adopt. More on this later. About 3 this afternoon, I got in my rental Toyota and headed for what’s called German Village. It’s a gorgeous district in Columbia, with brickwork I couldn’t believe, it’s truly a village within a big city. All the streets, miles and miles of them, are brick. I had a great meal of sausage and sauerkraut and local dark beer et Schmitt’s Restaurant und Sausage Haus (est 1866), then drove around in the rain, listening to A fabulous Leonard Cohen CD, “More Best Of” as a storm blew in. Got a cheap umbrella and shot a lot of photos in the rain, juggling the umbrella in the wind to keep drops off lens.
