Rock and Roll

Currently in Cleveland. Spent yesterday riding through Northwestern Ohio farm country on back-country roads and ended up riding through the center of Cleveland and am staying in downtown Cleveland. Got a great shot of the Cleveland skyline as I was riding into the city.

Played tourist today, visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Saw everything from Jerry Garcia's guitars to Jimi Hendrix's handwritten notes of the song "Purple Haze". You might be asking the same question I did when I first got to Cleveland--Why Cleveland for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Alan Freed, a Cleveland DJ, coined the phrase "Rock and Roll" years ago and the rest is history!

Also spent time in University Circle touring a traveling exhibit from the Vatican to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Saint Peter's Basilica, Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel ceiling and the establishment of the Papal Swiss Guard.

Will leave Cleveland early tomorrow on my way to Pennsylvania and then Upstate New York.
