arrival in Pittsburgh

When arriving last night I was kind of taken with how pretty Pittsburgh is at night... the bridges across the river are suspension bridges, well lit, and the town uses color. Flying overhead, I spotted a flaming smokestack, which I realized meant that this is a city that makes stuff. Steel City, or refinery, or whatever, it doesn't really matter what that thing was connected to; other than razor blades, I can't really think of stuff that comes out of Boston.

Driving from the airport, I spotted some pretty neon buildings down by the water; I can't remember what they were anymore, but... Pittsburgh's answer to Storrow Drive is just so wide, and relaxing, and well-lit.

It was pretty. what can I say?

Actually I've heard it said that there is one of every kind of bridge design (up to certain year) in pittsburgh, so it's noto just suspension, but arch bridges and like. I think pittsburgh has more bridges than any other city, but don't quote me on that.

Woot! That's more than anyone could possibly want to know :)
