Indiana getaway

Hi All,
Mr. Lucky and I drove over to Indianapolis, Indiana for the weekend. Here is a shot from our hotel room window on the 10th floor. I believe it is a picture of the capitol building.

Also out that same window. Beautiful building, don't you think? Wish it was a bit clearer for you. Never good to take pics from a window; especially at an angle.

Panning down the same building.
Ok, why were we in Indianapolis? To go to the King Tut exibit at the Children's Museum. Of course, we were not allowed to take pictures of the exibit so no pics, sorry. I will tell you that it was very neat and I enjoyed it alot.

The museum was 4 stories tall and this massive Chihuly glass sculpture ran up the center.

Here is the middle

The top

And looking down to the bottom. Very impressive in person!
Indianapolis is a great town to visit. Saturday night, we had dinner and a pint at Rock Bottom Brewery and Restaurant then listened to a blues band at The Slippery Noodle. There is quite a good night life scene there. It was a fun time. Once again, I didn't take pictures so you'll have to take my word for it.
OK, next time I hope to show some craftiness. Talk at you later. Rumi
