We got in late the first night so we woke up early the next morning and worked a few hours then headed out to explore the city. We got going at about 2 in the afternoon.
|This is the national WW1 memorial (unfortunately it was closed the day we were there)
|This is the view of the city from the WWI memorial. The building to the left in the foreground is Union Station.
|A panorama of the view of the city from the WWI memorial
|You could imagine the bustling place Union Station once was
|this is a view of the ceiling
|There was a player piano
|In the back they had a really nice model train collection
|they had many different scales of trains and they were all elaborately displayed
|they really knew how to build stuff back in the day
|We biked all over the place. Here you see Kansas City divided: Missouri on the right, Kansas on the left.
|Part of the museum on the lower level, we found this inside City Market.
|There are tons of fountains in Kansas City. We found a map of them and there were dozens just in downtown alone.
|This was an interesting tear drop camper that had a cool slideout in the front
|This is a great camper idea
|The KC football game was being broadcast on a screen and there was a nice outdoor area where people gathered
|We found a sushi restaurant (the Drunken Fish) that had great ratings and they were half price through Yelp. :)
This is the chef's combo.
|we got a miso soup and a seaweed salad
|some vegetarian sushi
|This is the inside of the sushi restaurant
|Of course, on the way out we had to stop by Kauffman Stadium (where the KC Royals play) to pick up something for Cara's
brother, Kirk, who has to be one of the biggest Royals fans.
|I'm sure it was killing Kirk that we were in Kansas City, and he wasn't, especially since there was a playoff game later that day.
