The last of the upstate series. It's nice to have the opportunity to see a different world and contrast it with the city, it sort of refreshes the senses. I'm happy to be back, though.
I grew up in a world more like upstate NY (not so mountainous, but equally rural) and I always wanted to get away to the "city" - although at the time the small town near where I lived, population 20,000, was my idea of a city.
After about a day up there I'm always itching to leave.
