... the Arch of St.Louis ...

After approx. 3 hour driving, we arrived our first stop; St.Louis. It's my second time in this city, (the first one was Mardi Gras 2009) and this time we could hang out during daytime. Our main target was climb the Gateway Arch, however, it was kind of late and there was a huge line, so we decided to skip that attraction for this time. We hung out in the park and around the shore of Mississippi river. The weather was pretty good, and it's ablosutely relaxing. I recommend, if you go to St.Louis. Also, you can ride by horse-carriages. When I saw them, I just remembered the Adalar (Islands) neighborhood in Istanbul. Fantastic!

Anyhow, after a while, we headed to the downtown. St.Louis is not a metropolitan city, and the downtown looks like a regular American city. Streets, architecture etc. is so ordinary, however I liked St.Louis. There was tranquility in downtown, and it does not choke you (I hope you understand what I'm saying =)).

During our walk, we passed through the famous Busch Stadium (home of St.Louis Cardinals, baseball team), Bowling Museum, and the other important landmarks of the city. I like the station of St.Louis, it's not only a train station, but also a mall. It's good to hang out a little  bit there. (Not too much, though =))

Basically, the first day was a simple but relaxing day for the next of our 'southern' experience ...
