Bollwitts in Iowa – An American Highway Rest Stop

Comments 10 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I have a song by Phil Ayoub stuck in my head as we pull into the rest stop on I-35 North. This morning we had breakfast in Kansas City and enjoyed some chorizo, eggs, beans and tortillas prepared by John’s great aunt and grandma. We just entered Iowa from Missouri on our way to John’s home town. It’s a beautiful sunny day and the hills and rivers I can see along the rolling landscape are pretty breathtaking. Sitting in the car, soaking up the free wifi and 26 degree celcius heat I thought I’d post some more photos from our journey.

    Yeah, the track jacket came off after that, but after this, the temp dropped by ten degrees F. It got cold quick. Might be some snow here on turkey day.
