|The irony that Tara was writing a othptomology exam|
at a center for the visually impaired
was lost on the staff at the center
There are no two ways about it; Buffalo is a bit of a dump.Nearly every other building is abandoned. The sidewalks are all cracked and broken (although the curbs are all cut stone, which was surprisingly classy). Windows and doors are boarded up. Graffiti is prevalent. There are few stores, few restaurants, few parks. Even around the HSBC center where the Buffalo Sabres play there is nothing to do. The city is in decline.
Tara's exams went well and she gets the results in a couple of months. Besides 1.5 hours at the border and a couple of wrong turns looking for the hotel, the trip was a success. We even took in some shopping. That said, I'm hoping we don't need to go back any time soon.
