Pittsburgh

Today we headed to Pittsburgh to visit some of my favorite places from when I was a student there.  The weather wasn't very cooperative and our time was limited, so I couldn't go all the way down Memory Lane with Nick, but we did hit a few of the best spots.  We had an awesome brunch at Pamela's in the Strip District, hung out with the Carnegie Museum Diplodocus, and visited my favorite building on campus.

The Cathedral of Learning isn't normally this crowded, but there happened to be a massive open house going on for the nationality rooms.  We saw some cool performances, Greek dancing, Irish dancing, and Swiss yodeling, and got to visit the secret, upstairs part of the Early American room (it's said to be haunted).  The rooms are all decorated for the holidays according to their different cultures, but it was too crowded to really get at good look at them.  I'd like to go back when the Cathedral is in its normal, quiet, study mode, so Nick and I can look around properly.  All in all, it was a great day, and I hope to be able to visit Pittsburgh again soon.
