Day 17: Work day in Cleveland. We spent most of the day catching up on projects that had accumulated during the previous week of travel and events. So many details, so little time. Felt good to get (mostly) caught up.
We did wander out late in the afternoon to get some sun (yay!) and look around the Cleveland downtown. All the pictures were taken within 3 blocks of our hotel. (Cleveland blocks are quite large compared to Portland.)
This area of Cleveland is an interesting mix of old and new. The Cleveland Public Library across from our hotel and many of the other office buildings are old, dating back to the early 20th century. Our hotel is even older, dating to 1890.
Memorial Plaza, the Convention Center, the Hilton (tall, blue, reflective, oddly shaped building), the football stadium, and the Great Lakes Marine Science Center have all been built in the last 25 years or so.
The city has done a masterful job of incorporating new architecture with old; the mix works well.
We're off to Erie, PA later today for an event at Blasco Memorial Library. Connecting US 20 is part of a big talent show this evening. Should be a fun time!
