Then it was time to say bye to Sarah, and head home. It was weird how quickly two years passed and how much hanging out with each other was the same, even though I feel like we are both way different people. I'm not sure when I'll see her again but hopefully she visits us someday.

A cast of "The Thinker". Apparently in the 70's it was damaged by a dynamite explosion from a political group.

Edgewater beach, Little Italy and University Circle
After the day at the beach we walked around showed P&T Little Italy. It's smaller than Hertel but it's a legit Italian neighborhood, with a bunch of immigrants and Italian speakers, old men who play bocce etc. There always was rumors of Mafia too but who knows. Ask (e:paul) about the riot stories he researched.
We ate at La Dolce Vita and had ridiculous amounts of food. I never really ate at Little Italy either except a few special events where the food was free.
The whole University Circle neighborhood Case is in is way bouged up now. All the vacant lots and run down buildings are now a consumerist paradise developed by the school, because apparently colleges are supposed to be 50% malls, 25% gyms, and 25% class buildings. A lot of the restaurants and stores are Chinese and Korean themed. Almost a quarter of the school is international students and they almost always pay full price.
The University Hospitals Seidman cancer center has super nice infusion rooms compared to the Roswell cubes.

Visit to Cleveland
We stayed in a super swank hotel called the Intercontinental. It was so fance I had a minor panic attack checking in. It was attached to the Cleveland Clinic which squicks me out. Everyone from around the world flies in to get their strange ailments cured.
On the way down I accidently got off in the rough Hough neighborhood while we were running out of gas, right north of the Cleveland Clinic. It was a bad intro to Cleveland for (e:paul) and (e:terry). To be fair I almost never went to or around Cleveland in a car.
You know you're at a hospital when:
Euclid Avenue Healthline below and Clinic land as far as the eye can see.
Afterwards, we took a Lyft to Ohio City - sort of Allentown but a little more big city - to meet up with Sarah and her classmates. We ate delicious food at the Bier Markt, and then met them at a Bar called Town Hall. Previous to this I only had been to one place in Ohio City, and felt scammed because I had to pay $4 for a beer. Everything seemed way too expensive then.
All the Clevelanders seem to use Uber and Lyft. We used them too - I like the transit much more but we had so little time. Cleveland has three train lines that run through it, and two 24 hour bus rapid transit lines.
Bunny at a bar
I split off with Paul and Terry when they went to some gay bar called the Leather Stallion. Sarah sat in her bed until 5 am talking like we used to.
