My trip to Connecticut was for business: I was out there for an interview in Bristol and wanted to connect that with a long weekend in New York to see a friend from Sweden. Bristol is a suburb of a suburb that is undergoing a lot of change, and I was interviewing for a planner position. I actually grew to like the area and could see living there, but unfortunately that would also mean a driving and on this part of the trip I did not get a chance to take very many pictures except for a few pictures of the Calvin and Hobbes-esque houses all around.
Abu Dhabi that I once called an autopia.
The one bright spot that I noticed while I was there was the Super Natural Market in Bristol, which had a great lunch counter. One of the most interesting things on the menu? Steamed Hamburgers. It was pretty good! The process makes the burgers a little more tender and crumbly, but it was a lot for a not that much. If I worked here, I would be checking this place out for lunch daily.
After spending the day driving around, it was time to leave. On the way to drop off the rental car, I dropped by ON20 in Hartford, which is a skybar there. You can check out the photos after the break, along with a few from the train station. Next time? New York City!
