A Road Trip to America’s Heartland
We took a 10 hour road trip from Atlanta to Cleveland and passed through the rolling hills and lush greenery of Kentucky and Tennessee and through Ohio’s farmland. I can’t say much about Cleveland because I wasn’t able to do a lot of sightseeing in 2 days.
I did visit Shakers Square which is a quaint shopping area with boutiques, art galleries and restaurants. All 10 minutes that it took me to walk the entire square was quite interesting. On our first night Mr. Jehancancook, myself and a few of his coworkers went to dinner at Momocho, a restaurant one of his coworkers found on Diner, Drive-ins and Dives. The menu was intriguing, it ranged from guacamole 6 different ways to braised duck and yam enchiladas. We tried the guacamole sampler which allows u to order any 3 types, we went with the goat cheese guacamole, smoke trout guacamole and pineapple guacamole, they accompanied with heaping bowls of tortilla chips. We ate it all.
It happened to be Cinco de mayo so I had 2 cucumber margaritas and a pineapple margarita, which were divine. My only disappointment was that we don’t have a Momocho in Atlanta. I should tell you to be prepared to wait if you’re going to visit, maybe because it was Cinco De Mayo but this place was packed and had a bit of a wait to get a table.
On the last leg of our trip we decided to stop in North Carolina to visit some good friends that we haven’t seen in forever. It involved dominoes, beers, soccer games, a sweet 16th birthday party and just an all around good time.
