Yesterday night, A couple from couchsurfing picked me up at Greyhound Station at 8:30PM.
It was their first time to host people since they moved in this place. They used to live in North Carolina and just two month ago, they came here.
“There is no other good places but nobody comes!” They welcomed me.
They were very kind and they understand how backpackers survive. They let me wash my clothes and they gave me a teeth paste. I love them!
They also gave me food to eat. They said they can rent me a bike tomorrow. so After eating, we went to walk the way I suppose to take tomorrow by bike at 11pm.
Very Beautiful, nice! This is what I thought as a first impression. It was dark outside, but I can understand.
I was worried about walking at this night time, but they said here is safe.
recently it was raining so the water was flooding. This is famous place”Falls park Reedy”.
Now many things are new here, and beautiful. They told me.
Next day, the boy friend took me to Indian buffet. Yummy! I hope there is one like this in my city.
Down town was crowded at lunch time even week day.
After lunch, I biked from their home by my self. I think 10 miles/one way?
Total 3h30mins’ ride. It was flat and well managed for the people who excersice. I saw people running, biking. I also see people running with dogs and baby cars! I cannot see this in Japan.
On the way, there are some cafes, restrooms, and shops.
I loved here much! i also saw squirrels, ducks, and barbies. At the end of the cycling road, I found some vintage shops, golf park, and ice cream store.
I am sure that few years later this city is gonna be a famous as a”city you want to live”!
I am glad that I am here.
I am going to North Carolina Charlotte and Asheville tonight.
