Sojourn in Hot Springs, Arkansas

Back from Hot Springs, Arkansas, via Hope and Texarkana. This was my first visit in eight years. Just as then, loved it. And this time, stayed at the Arlington Hotel (opened on the last day of 1924), where Al Capone used to stay and on different occasions, FDR and Bill Clinton. Let's not forget Babe Ruth. Totally cool experience. More details to follow at some point, I suspect.  Fascinating locale.

did you take your soap with you Erik? I mean you are going to hit the hot springs right?

Sorry for the long absence but *shrug* this one was worse than all all of the rest combined.

Let me know when you're back in The D. First beer is on you.
