Glad to hear you survived your trip. I felt the same way when I moved here 20 years ago for school and never left. Get that reaction a lot. There are times you are like driving through a forest and then 5 minutes later you are in downtown. We have a little of everything and some great views of downtown from all over as everywhere is up from downtown.
It was the drive into town northbound on 71. You're driving up a hill, down a hill, up a hill, down a hill, and all of a sudden you round a big turn and there's the river and the city. My first thought was wow this is not what I expected at all.
Everywhere I went...which granted wasn't that many places...but everywhere I went was clean and seemed safe. I've been to some towns and wouldn't leave the hotel cause I felt like I might get shot at. Not so here. Everywhere I stopped I started a conversation with someone that was really friendly and had something to say about my southern accent. Always good. They may have been thinking stupid hick, but no one ever said it to me so I'll take it.
