We left on Thursday morning at 5am-ish in the pouring rain, and once we reached the city, the brakes on Anthony's jeep stopped working. What followed was a terrifying 5 minutes, a tow ride to a repair shop off the map, and then a long cab ride to our hotel with all of our bags to finally check in. We made the best of the situation (luckily, we didn't need a car to get around), but we were still a bit bummed. The hotel upgraded our room though, which was a welcome, unexpected and needed treat.
This week, I'll be posting highlights from our trip. Also, this was the first time I used my iPhone to take candid, off-the-cuff pictures and it was cool and distracting at the same time. We had a great time, but I'm happy to be home in our freezing apartment with a repaired automobile.
