This town will always have a special place in my memories. It was the first city I traveled to after “running off with the carnival” in 2001. The kind people from one of the local churches provided with a delicious lunch every day which really made me feel welcome and kept me from feeling too homesick. It also set the mood for me feeling like my new co-workers were an extended family.
