Here is a wrap up of Pittsburgh Day 2. It's a few days old now (from November 25th), but I like logging this stuff anyways.
First we drove about an hour into the boonies in order to take an expensive tour of Fallingwater.
Fallingwater is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's later creations, completed in 1939. The house cost $150,000 at a time when the average home in the USA cost a mere $5,000. The place was incredible, and it's no wonder that the American Institute of Architects called it "the best all-time work of American architecture." It turns out you really do get what you pay for. That is, except for the pricey, guided tour, which was BORING and SLOW and they wouldn't let us take any pictures at all.
After Fallingwater, I made Claire stop about a million times so I could take pictures of all the shiny objects in rural Pennsylvania that grabbed my attention. I was like the annoying dog that has to stop to pee on absolutely every single thing in the universe. Except that I pee with my camera.
