after writing last nights blog post I went out to find some dinner. Driving past the Macdonalds and Subway I saw a sign which said 'buisness distric' or something along those lines and so I turned off the highway in the hopes of finding some nice little restaurant. Down town turned out to be short on businesses but had the familiar feel of empty buildings of the late 1800's early 1900's era, a few businesses seem like they might have been open if it hadn't been 7pm on a Sunday, others had clearly gone under, their windows empty or boarded over. Amongst this I saw a flashing sign which said "open" it turned out to be a Chinese restaurant so I went in. It was a cafeteria like place with simple tables and chairs in rows not quite managing to make the room feel less empty and I was the only one there, not a single other person was eating there. I sat down and ordered some food trying to make myself feel less awkward. In the end I only succeeded in getting to feeling comfortable about being uncomfortable and returned as soon as possible to the motel room.
Packing up this morning I have left a Gaelic flyer in with the other flyers for Kansas attractions, who knows it might just be the thing that gets someone else started learning Gaelic. :)
here are some of the photos from yesterday
