Great Things about Asheville

We're thoroughly enjoying our little holiday in Asheville, NC. Here is a list of some of the great things about Asheville:
  • Malaprop's Bookstore has a section devoted to banned books. In most of these books is a card describing where it is banned and why. It's good to be reminded that reading can be radical.
  • Southern cooking, OMG. Mac and cheese is listed with "vegetables" on many menus. Everything is fresh, fatty, and good.
  • Lots of Nia. I plan to take a class tomorrow.
  • A giant arboretum designed by Frederick Law Olmstead.
  • Mountain trails. We plan to do some hiking tomorrow.
  • Vibrant, artsy downtown.
  • Live bluegrass! You may recall how I adore bluegrass.
