Willow

Columbus, Ohio

... is where the WFC is being held this year. I never had a great burning desire to visit Ohio. Not like I have always had for NYC or Hollywood or I dunno, Rhode Island. But here I am nonetheless and a lovely state of the Union States it is. If bloody freezing! The weather had been pretty mild in the States til that front moved in on Tuesday and then the temperature plumetted about 20 degrees and its fricking freezing even with my big coat on.

I'd never before flown into a US city that was not a major city and was absolutely fascinated by the streets and houses in, I guess, suburbs? All so circular and precise. And planned.

Here is the view from my hotel room on the 18th floor. It's not a small city but the streets are very wide and not very busy.
