Experiencing a new city, especially a metropolitan city twice the size of the one you live in, is always new and exciting but there's never enough time to take it all in satisfactorily. Unfortunately this is almost always the case for me and my trip to Kansas City wasn't any different. The wedding was nice and fun, more so than most weddings, but the only time available to use the camera was after first checking in and before going to bed those two nights.
Fortunately, the fancy hotel put us in a room where someone had broken the lock on the screen door so it could be opened more than an inch (thank-you!!!!). The opportunity would not be lost - that sucker was opened all the way and every available minute was spent in front of the "balcony." It was invigorating to hear the roar of the city and "experience" it in such a manner.
My party didn't feel like going out after the wedding with some of the other guests but all of us were the last to leave the rehearsal dinner and the reception and was still fun.
