Charlotte thoughts 2 - more strangeness

Saturday dawned with another revelation about Uptown Charlotte. Its restaurants and shops are closed for the weekend! I know that I wasn't entirely wrong about people living in the area - there are some signs pointing to condos and more, but the place is shuttered on a Saturday afternoon. I see people about, but must make the assumption that most are tourists who will end up eating in their hotels. How odd to create an atmosphere so insular that it closes when most should be available to explore it.


Walking the deserted streets of the Queen City on a brilliant, warm Saturday afternoon - November in Carolina, the drone of bagpipes fills the air. (!)
