My first week in Kansas was nothing like what the warning had geared me up for. I was concerned about being stuck in the middle of nowhere for 4th July. Luckily enough I just happened to arrive in Lawrence for the most widely known American holiday. It was exactly what I was looking for; a fun night with some loud people.
I was told that the surrounding area is extremely fertile and there are quite a few people practicing a self sustainable lifestyle.
I'm looking forward to spending more than a week in one state, it have been a while since I have done so. I hope to get to know Kansas more than I did Missouri and Illinois.
