After a LONG and productive week of working, Jason and I decided to take a day trip to Asheville, North Carolina to relax and explore! We had a wonderful time, despite the nasty weather - it was very cloudy and only about 50 degrees, even though it was finally up to 70 on Thursday. As we didn't get into town until around 1:00 we decided to eat lunch first. As those of you who have been to Asheville know, they have tons of GREAT restaurants so we had quite a choice to make. We both decided that we wanted to go for some Chinese food and ended up eating at a great little place called The Noodle. This is a picture of Jason and I after chowing down on some great noodles!
Next Jason and I attempted to see a cultural exhibit at the YMI Cultural Center called "Africa," however, after purchasing tickets and walking a couple of blocks, we realized that the exhibit had closed for the day. So instead, we walked through the city and saw some strange dancing group. I think they were from some local college and doing English Country Dancing. It was very interesting - as we the crowd that formed around them.
We then decided to walk around the shops down town.
Jason and I found an old Woolworth's with a really cool soda fountain in it and had cappacino's which were YUMMY. This is a silly picture we took with our capacino mustaches :)
We then visited Jason's favorite bookstore, where we read for a couple of hours.
We hope you all enjoyed our blog about Asheville as much as we enjoyed our day trip!
