Yesterday I was in Charlottesville, Virginia.The one word to describe this town is pretty. All the streets have trees and flowers along the road.
I wanted to see this town for two reasons: One, it’s the home of the University of Virginia, and college towns are always full of life (and cheap food – I got a chicken flatbread sandwich and some chips for $2.73!) Second, it’s where the Dave Matthews Band was formed. I used to be a huge DMB fan, though my musical tastes lean more towards indie stuff like MGMT and Sigur Ros these days. Unfortunately, the bar where DMB performed their first shows back in the early ’90s, Trax, has been demolished. That would’ve been a tourist attraction I needed to see.
Tonight I’ll be back in the western part of West Virginia, at a friend’s house near the Kentucky border.
