Another Day, Another Skyline
Nov 29 - We passed through Charlotte today. Why? Not sure really. We occasionally gravitate towards the orange blobs on our map just to see if population really does breed excitement.

But, what the hey. We needed to cross off North Carolina, so why not breeze through the towering monoliths that make up the skyline of North Carolina's largest city? They certainly were towering. Much bigger than we expected, actually.

"But wait!" some of you are saying, "That picture doesn't look like it has towering monoliths. Are you being sarcastic?" Nope. Not sarcastic at all. Charlotte is a huge sprawling city with some pretty big skyscrapers. "Then why do the buildings look so small?"

Because that picture is not a picture of Charlotte. It's actually Iowa City's skyline. Or is it Mobile? Could it be Jackson, Mississippi? Wilmington, Delaware?

Heh heh heh. Don't know, do ya? Let's see what you do know...

("Oh no," you say, "I smell a contest.")
