My mind is still absorbing some of the experiences I had after Amtrak cancelled my train home because of the snowstorm in West Virginia. So explore Iowa City and see what it has to offer since well I might not be back again! But we can never say never now can we? So first an amazing black bean burger for lunch and then a walk to find an ATM for $$. Can't take a bus home without some cash to guide the experience as necessary. So I am strolling down the street on a perfectly sunny and amazing day - watching students on U of Iowa's campus out rallying for Romney. I wanted to go over and ask them what they thought he would/could do for them but gaining wisdom as I age, I thought it wouldn't be the best idea. So I walked down the street and discovered Molly's Cupcakes...all of the senses drew me in. I had to sit and gaze for awhile before I could make a decision but I was drawn in by the sign for CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY so I knew I had to go for it. Chocolate ganache, raspberry filling and chocolate cupcake. Need I say more?!? Just look at the cupcakes in the case and see the ones on the top shelf with the red raspberry on top!! A picture is worth a thousand words BUT taste sensations are most awesome!! See again it proves that synchronicities abound because had I been on the road to Chicago, I would have totally missed this part of the adventure!!
As I said, WOO HOO!!
