I wanted to minimize costs in Cleveland so upon arrival I decided to utilize public transportation to get around. Equipped with a backpack and a suitcase, I hit the streets of Cleveland by train and bus to find my two-star dive of a hotel. Check in wasn’t until 3 so back to the streets for more urban adventures.
After getting on the right bus going the wrong direction, I wasted enough time that my aunt was back at her house. Two buses later and a half-mile walk; backpack, suitcase, and Mike plopped down on the porch. I was greeted by my Aunt Kim with hugs and more food than I could have imagined!
After more family arrived, I hitched a ride from to my hotel so I could minimize my luggage before 4th of July barbecue and family reunion extravaganza.
