After Richmond we headed to Norfolk for a night but unfortunately didn’t really get to see the majority of the town since I got a flat tire. But we had another awesome couchsurfing host, Steve, who cooked us an amazing Indian feast using the skills he acquired when he backpacked through India for 3 months.
Steve took us out to one of the local bars where we checked out The Antique Scream, a band from Seattle. The next morning I had to get my car towed because of the tire.
Our rating of Norfolk compared to Charlotte. Charlotte being a 0, +3 being definite contender for our new city…
I thought the city was quaint and pretty, but I want somewhere with a little more variety… I need lots of international shops and restaurants. It seemed like a quaint, fairly safe place, but a little generic. It did seem to have a slightly healthier music scene though which is a plus for Ben.
