Ok, so it's not totally the middle of nowhere... but it's far enough away from what I would call "civilization" that I briefly found myself panicking at the lack of wifi and Starbucks (because really... wifi
+ Starbucks= civilization, right?).
I wandered my silly self all the way from Chicago to said Middle-of-Nowhere to enjoy some outdoor theatricals wonder at American Player's Theatre in Spring Green, Wisconsin (for real... if you get the chance to take in a show here, DO IT). Since I had two evening shows booked on different nights, I got a whole day to go for a drive and found myself landed smack dab in the middle of a town where history has been frozen (aka Mineral Point, Wisco). Aside from my ability to find anything resembling espresso, I will say that I really enjoyed my day. Most of the shops were closed, but I met a weaver who was kind enough to give me a brief lesson on the workings of her loom, got the best pasty I've been able to find outside of England (mmmmm, rutabagas!), and stumbled upon an antique armoire that had been painted the exact same colour as my nail polish.
All in all... a lovely place in which to while away a day! I need more of these! 15 days and counting until I move to Germany with Soldier Boy!!!
