Well this post is a bit late but I'll blame that on an insane work load this week. Anyway, the walkabout was a very interesting experience. The group (turns out a total of 5 of us showed up) met at a local museum that is the center for the arts district in my town. Instead of going in we decided to just wander the area aimlessly to see what cool stuff we could find (hence walkabout). Now I'm not an artsy person but we found places that had amazing objects aka art, inside. I think the highlight was when we found a private studio that had a rendition of mount Rushmore done in cardboard but tweaked into a anti corporate message. It's hard to explain but there was a old school Tonka truck with a 32oz bottle of ketchup near it. Win. Anyway, we closed the day with a meal in the little Ethiopia district that turned out to be very tasty. All in all a fun day of randomness.
