After Detroit, we headed to Buffalo to visit Annie and her fiance for a couple of days. Buffalo was a really interesting place. It was very authentic. I think Annie summed it up pretty well when she said the people who live in Buffalo are naturally “cool”, without trying at all… just completely real. And it’s hard to imagine, but it’s completely accurate as far as I could tell. A few of the highlights of our time there… meeting Annie’s fiance Soumaila, checking out the awesome super grocery store, Wegman’s… visiting Niagara Falls… getting some amazing handmade White Cow Dairy yogurt from the farmer’s market…. Annie’s equally amazing homemade Bulgar pilaf. And of course, we can’t forget…. Ben and I were judges for the Boy’s and Girl’s Club talent show! It was an interesting experience for sure!
I got this photo from the club… one of the students snapped it right after the show, before the awards
Our rating of Buffalo compared to Charlotte. Charlotte being a 0, +3 being definite contender for our new city…
