Americana – Part 1

I spent an eventful few months in the US this year. This was a post I had been meaning to publish several months ago!

Without further ado, here it is…

 

A train derailed and dumped some airplane fuselages into a Montana river, my beloved Brazil was annihilated at  their home at the beautiful game…

 

But I digress… My own trip has certainly been interesting! I took some looong bus rides…

Via Indianapolis…

Then it was on to Washington State in the Northwest where I saw some gorgeous cityscapes …

Got to check out some amazing aircraft up close and personal…

…suffice to say that it has been eventful 🙂

 

This being summer, temperatures have been lovely, if not a tad too hot and sticky right now.

 

One of the things I really admire about the American psyche is their unashamed patriotism. Around every corner, American flags flutter in the wind, hanging off buildings, front porches, peoples’ cars. Americana is all around me, I don’t need to go looking. It strikes you (gently though :)) right in the face.

Truth be told, it is infectious. You can’t help but admire it. As for me, having been here for an unexpectedly long duration this time, I can’t escape its ubiquity; I can’t help but get infected 😉

So, enjoy this first installment of my post from “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”

I will share images from the second half of my trip, to the great American Midwest and the Palmetto State, soon…
