It's old but not too funky but funky enough that we feel right at home. There's a courtyard with a fountain and a pool and every room is different.
So we're in downtown Mobile, Alabama and I've never been here before but I like it so far.
Alabama is a strange place. We drove through parts of it yesterday where the biggest and most going concerns were churches and the deli at the convenience store where they post the hours of when they cut the fryers off. Then we drove through a small town that looked like they'd taken every bit of the wealth of the entire state and boiled it down and did a, oh, what do call that, a reduction, and every bit of space that wasn't taken up with bricks and paving was planted with what looked like a flower arrangement. Jesus. The shops, the cute little cafes/restaurants, the giant mansions! Lordy, child.
We kept driving.
And here we are.
Tonight we're going to go see an old friend play music a few blocks from here. This is sort of but not really the reason we came to Mobile.
Gonna go explore.
And then take a nap.
With my handsome husband.
I'm happy. Thank god I left the house.
