A Taste of Charlotte, Part 2

Even though I had big work commitments while in Charlotte, I managed to fit in some delicious food, a trip to the EpiCentre, and a little more sightseeing.  Even just in the Uptown area, there was a lot packed into a few blocks.  Next time I visit the south, I definitely want to visit the countryside.

Taco Pie, greens and plantains.  My co-worker and I decided the Taco Pie looked like a jellyfish; I only managed to eat half of this meal.
I had no idea there was a Jungle Juice out there for kids.  I'm only familiar with a jungle juice served at frat parties (that should generally be avoided :)
Cute little trolley driving folks around.

California, I didn't miss you for one second.  Sorry I'm not sorry.
Fire Bird statue outside of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.
Shhhh, one teeny picture from the museum. Apparently pics are not allowed.  I didn't use my flash though, so the painting was not harmed in the process.
I love where I am in my life right now, but days like this make me consider packing up my apartment and hitting the road for a few months.  So grateful for an opportunity to visit the great state of North Carolina!


  1. Awesome pictures! It looks like you had a great time. Did you drink sweet tea???

    1. Thank you! And yup I definitely had some... there is nothing like it here in Cali!
