Next stop on the South Carolina tour

The conference I was attending was held downtown Columbia just blocks from the capitol building. I had time on the evenings and just about all day Sunday to walk the streets and take in the beautiful old buildings, churches and capitol structures (and of course the Pokemon players). What I thought was some kind of political rally or demonstration on the front lawn of the capitol was really a bunch of Pokemon players. They were there night or day the whole time. We also had a special treat on Saturday. A regular street market set up outside our hotel and the conference organizers gave us a little extra time between sessions to explore. I came home with some wonderful soy candles and the vendors business card so I could get more. I'll post a few pictures here and put the rest under the cut.

It was a mixture of the old and the new with some interesting repurposing.

As lovely as the new buildings are, I really love the older ones better!
it looks like a wonderful town to explore.

I agree with you there. I was in the super modern, tan, angular hotel pictured above but my window view was of the much older buildings just below it. Quite a welcome contrast and I couldn't have even begun to post all the old churches covering the city.

If you like this I have one more adventure to post. What happens when you discover you are leaving town at 8pm instead of 8am? What do you do with yourself? I'll post it tomorrow.

I'm sorry about that. I try to post some representatives for the post in case of such an unfortunate situation. Maybe the goat will put things back later.

Darn goat. Should smack him for messing with the pictures.
