WorldCon 2016 - Prologue Part II

Monday, August 15th: New Day!

Christopher had to work. Boo!
Kev drove me all the way to Alton, IL (okay, 30 minute drive) to Olga's - one of my favorite chain restaurants. I used to go all the time, especially in high school and college. Then all the CA restaurants closed *sniff* and the only way to get my fix is to get Kev to take me there. There is ONE Olga's in Illinois and after that you have to go Michigan. I had my original Olga, an Olga Salad and a piece of spinach pie. YUM!!!

Not sure how long this place will stay open - the Mall is half empty.

Kev had work to do, so I bravely went back to the treadmill. No running, but I did walk 3+ miles. I would normally have done my walking outside, but Missouri? It's HOT and HUMID - plus I don't know the area, so won't walk at night. Nope nope nope.


Dinner at our favorite Ethiopian restaurant, Meskerem! Love their injera.
